European Union (EU) regulatory laws govern cross-cutting issues that impact cross-border and cross-sector commercial activities. The EU Commission has particular responsibility for competition law and state aids as well as for customs rules, citizens’ interests and for the EU’s external trade policy. Non-discrimination, whether applied to the free movement of goods, services, capital or of EU citizens is an underlying legal principle of the EU single-market. Subject to the principle of subsidiarity, framework regulation of energy, digital and environmental policies and specifically of data protection law has been developed by the EU institutions and is being implemented by its Member States. Internally, the EU institutions employ numerous officials and agents to whom specific staff regulations, differing from their national labour laws, apply.
