The European Commission periodically publishes an evaluation of Bosnia and Herzegovina's progress toward accession. The report includes analysis of the current political and economic status of the country and outlines the areas in which the Bosnian government needs to focus on reform.

Based on the Commission's reports and assessments, the European Council makes Decisions on a country's progress towards membership.

 As part of its Common Foreign and Security Policy/European Security and Defense Policy (CFSP/ESDP), the Council has deployed an EU Special Representative (EUSR) to Bosnia. The head of the EUSR also holds the position of the High Representative of the international community in Bosnia. The Office of the High Representative is the locus of activity for both initiatives.
