EU directives are implemented individually by Member States as part of their national law. These laws are referred to as National Transposition Measures (or National Implementing Legislation, National Execution Measures). Locating National Transposition Measures involves two steps:
Finding the text of National Implementing Legislation is a two-step process in and of itself.
Identifying Legislative Sources by Name
Check the following sources for titles of collections of national laws and legislation for Member countries.

The EU has developed N-Lex as a single portal to all Member nation's implementing legislation. It is still in its experimental stages, so not every Member's links work.
Consult the Law Library Catalog to determine if we hold the source in print or electronically.
Another resource for finding a nation's official legislative webpage is the Law Library's E-Resources page.
