Proportionality

The principle of proportionality is laid down in article 5 - lisbon treaty on european union.

The principle of proportionality regulates the exercise of powers by the European Union and means that the EU involvement should be restricted to being just enough to achieve the objectives set out in the Treaties and no more. Preference should be given to directives rather than regulations

Subsidiarity and proportionality are fundamental principles which should be applied across EU activity, to ensure the EU acts only when necessary, that action takes place at the lowest level possible, and that the means are proportionate to the end.

The principle of proportionality is laid down in Article 5 - Lisbon Treaty on European Union.
