What is being negotiated?
The acquis for Chapter 30 is largely composed of directly applicable EU legislation, stemming mainly from the multilateral and bilateral commitments of the European Union in the area of trade, as well as from a large number of autonomous trade measures. Directives in the field of export credits and dual-use goods require transposition into national law. Candidate countries are required to progressively align their policies with third countries and their positions in international organizations with policies and positions adopted by the European Union and its Member States. With respect to development policy and humanitarian assistance requirements, Montenegro is expected to align its legislation with the acquis, the international obligations accepted by EU Member States and to provide the capacity to participate in development and humanitarian aid for developing countries and at least developed countries.
