Factsheet – The EU accession process step by step

Every year, the Commission provides an Enlargement Communication, which outlines its recommendations regarding
the Enlargement process, and dedicated reports, which provide a detailed assessment of the state of play and the
progress made by the candidates and potential candidates on their respective paths towards the European Union. This
assessment focuses on the implementation of fundamental reforms, and also contains clear guidance on the reform
priorities ahead. The Communication and the reports together constitute the “Enlargement Package”.
