As has been said much better than here, the fact that these norms have the force of law implies two things. On the one hand, that they have active force, in the sense that they can repeal any other rules with the force of law. On the other hand, they have passive force, in the sense that they can only be modified or repealed by rules of the same rank (in other words: they resist modification by any rule that is below the law, i.e., a Regulation).[4] We will go into this issue in more detail in the next section.
