recommendation

a form of Act of the EUROPEAN UNION that has no binding force. It has been held that recommendations should still be taken into account by the national courts, especially if the recommendation assists with interpretation of some European law. Nonetheless, it is not possible to have them reviewed nor to seek a preliminary ruling upon them.
