What is the distinction between a decision and a recommendation in the Withdrawal Agreement?
Article 166 says decisions are legally binding.
Are recommendations legal demands placed upon the parties to give effect to a decision?
Decisions and Recommendations
The Joint Committee shall, for the purposes of this Agreement, have the power to adopt decisions in respect of all matters for which this Agreement so provides and to make appropriate recommendations to the Union and the United Kingdom.
The decisions adopted by the Joint Committee shall be binding on the Union and the United Kingdom, and the Union and the United Kingdom shall implement those decisions. They shall have the same legal effect as this Agreement.
The Joint Committee shall adopt its decisions and make its recommendations by mutual consent.
