What is Community Acquis

Also referred to as the "acquis communautaire", this is a French term meaning, essentially, "the body of EU law as it is at any one time" in other words, the rights and obligations that EU countries share. The acquis is constantly evolving, and includes all the EU's treaties and laws, declarations and resolutions, international agreements and the judgments given by the

Court of Justice. It also includes action that EU governments take together in the area of Justice and Home Affairs and on the Common Foreign and Security Policy. Countries that want to join the EU have to accept the acquis, and make it part of their own national legislation.
