The "someone" who decides we need an update is the European Commission.
For this issue, alongside the Parliament process, there is another process

a sort of compromise process to find something they can both agree with.
That is what becomes the directive.

http://europa.eu.int/eur-lex/en/about/abc/abc_21.html should be
