Does the legislative act confer powers to the Commission to adopt implementing acts?

Questions

Delegation of powers to adopt implementing acts:
Does the legislative act confer powers to the Commission to adopt implementing acts? If so, what type of provisions is the Commission allowed to adopt through implementing acts? What is the name of the applicable committee procedure and of the Comitology committee, respectively? What role do the EP and the Council play in the adoption of implementing acts based on this procedure?
Hint: All necessary information to answer this question is contained in the form of articles in the text of the legislative act. Use the ‘find’ function in Adobe reader. To find out more about the functioning of the applicable Comitology procedure, search in EUR-Lex for the comitology regulation number (along the lines of ‘(EC) No 1234/2007’) cited in the article that specifies the ‘committee procedure’ in the legislative act.
Delegation of powers to adopt delegated acts (only applicable if the legislative act was adopted after 1 December 2009):
Does the legislative act confer powers to the Commission to adopt delegated acts? If so, what type of provisions is the Commission allowed to adopt through delegated acts? What provisions about the conditions of the conferral and revocation of delegated powers does the legislative act contain?
Adoption of implementing acts:
If powers to adopt implementing acts were conferred to the Commission in the legislative act, have any such acts already been adopted? How did the responsible Comitology committee respond to the proposal(s) of the Commission? How often did the committee meet? How often was the draft proposal changed, and in what ways? How did member states vote? Was the proposal referred to the appeal committee (or to the Council in the pre-Lisbon era) and what was the outcome of the appeal?
Hint: One way to find implementing acts is to click on ‘Select all implementing acts mentioning this document’ on the ‘Document information’ page of the legislative act in EUR-Lex. Once you have identified the title of the implementing act, you can start your search in the Comitology register (see link below). Most of the remaining information necessary to answer the questions can be found there. Using words from the title of the legislative act, identify the ‘Basic Legal Act’ first, and then search for documents related to this act. Once you have found the relevant documents, click on the associated ‘dossier’ number to retrieve the documents related to the adoption of this implementing act. Once the name of the committee has been identified, further relevant documents can be found through a more general search for documents relating to this committee.
Adoption of delegated acts (only applicable if the legislative act was adopted after 1 December 2009):
If powers to adopt delegated acts were conferred on the Commission in the legislative act, have any such acts already been adopted? How did the Council and the EP respond to the proposal(s) of the Commission? Was there any controversy about the proposal inside the Council or the EP?
Hint: One way to find delegated acts is to click on ‘Select all delegated acts mentioning this document’ on the ‘Document information’ page of the legislative act in EUR-Lex. The website of the legislative act on the EP’s legislative observatory also has links to the legislative observatory pages of related delegated acts. In the Council’s register of documents, search for parts of the title of the proposal in the ‘title’ field to get the relevant documents of that institution.
