This chapter evaluates the European Model Company Act (EMCA) project. It considers the role that European regulation plays in company law generally; a role that has been dominated by the EU to date. Although EU harmonization has been mandatory, and has largely been confined to publicly listed companies, and therefore is not on all fours with the EMCA project, a consideration of these issues nevertheless raises important considerations for that project. The nature and benefit of the EMCA project are discussed.
