NSI as a whole Huge part of operations have a legal basis EU Regulation National Law Legal dispositions : What a NSI must do How a NSI must do it
NSI as a whole Problem of NSI overloading : Risk of loss of quality Problem of maintaining an overall quality Need to interfere with “must” legal dispositions Quite always the case in EU Regulations Could be more difficult in national ones
