EUROPA is the portal site of the European Union (http://europa.eu). It provides up-to-date coverage of European Union affairs and essential information on European integration. Users can also consult all legislation currently in force or under discussion, access the websites of each of the EU institutions and find out about the policies administered by the European Union under the powers devolved to it by the Treaties.
The aim of EUROPA is to act as a portal for access to all the institutions of the European Union and to the activities carried out by them in accordance with the powers vested in them under the Treaties.
EUROPA provides a vast array of information on European integration, particularly concerning the European Union's objectives, policies and institutional set-up. EUROPA is designed to be as user-friendly as possible in line with the EU institutions' commitment to openness. Compliance with the Web Accessibility Initiative ("WAI", level 1) is guaranteed on the top level pages.
