Burton's Legal Thesaurus. William C. Burton. 2006
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: Grimal-di v. Fonds de maladies professionnelles (1989) 322/88. Nonetheless, it is not possible to have them reviewed nor to seek a preliminary ruling upon them. A recommendation in the ECSC is more like an EEC Directive.
