Well-designed rules of administrative procedure for implementation of EU law and policies will have beneficial effects both for effectiveness of implementation as well as for the realisation of general principles of EU law: A codification of EU administrative procedure law has the potential improve compliance with the rule of law and the principle of legality in the EU, to enhance legal certainty and further the principles of good administration, to simplify the diversity of procedures and make more transparent rights and obligations of individuals and administrations alike. This will not be without effect on increasing the legitimacy of exercise of public powers in the Union. In order to live up to this potential, EU administrative procedure law needs to overcome its fragmentation. So far, each sector-specific legislation, despite addressing common problems, differs with respect to the formulation of procedural provisions. One of the central challenges for regulating EU administrative procedures is finding solutions for the forms of intense procedural cooperation between national and European administrative actors through ‘composite procedures’ characterised by multi-jurisdictional input into decision-making. The multiplication of composite procedures across the policy fields of the EU, furthering de-central administration of a single legal space under the concept of subsidiarity, currently has the potential of diffusing responsibility and endangering the constitutionally guaranteed right to an effective remedy. The ReNEUAL draft model rules on administrative procedure have been developed and discussed together with lawyers from practice and academia and from all over Europe. They are designed to offer solutions of how to ensure modern, state of the art and tailor-made solutions to the challenges facing implementation of EU law and policies in today’s realities of integrated administration.

De-central implementation of EU policies is increasingly undertaken by administrative networks linking Member States and EU bodies. Such joint implementation procedures are designed primarily to allow for effective gathering and sharing of information across jurisdictional borders but their procedural design is not without consequences for constitutional values, the protection of rights of individuals and a workable system of remedies. This article identifies such consequences and challenges of network administration for constitutional rights and principles. It then explores some possible approaches for the structural, organisational and procedural design of de-central implementation of EU policies through executive networks. [less ▲]

This chapter outlines the role of the judiciary in shaping the European administrative system, the major developmental stages of judicial review of administrative action and the evolution of concepts under which judicial accountability has been exercised. In this context, it looks at the consequences for judicial accountability by the increasing integration of administrative procedures in the EU. This chapter argues that such procedural forms of cooperation have been established with a primary concern for efficiency of de-central administrative action but less with regard to possibilities of exercising judicial review ensuring compliance with written provisions and General Principles of EU law and rights of individuals.

The following analysis looks at the right to an effective judicial remedy - recognized as a right arising from General Principles of EU law as well as being explicitly listed in Article 47 CFR - in its relation to the principle of effectiveness – a sub-principle of the Member State obligation to sincere cooperation. This brief overview looks at the right’s constitutional context, the scope of protection recognized by it, as well as the possible limitations of the right. The chapter ends by evoking some open questions and requirements for future developments. [less ▲]

Treaty provisions and Union legislation are only part of the story of how law can actually take effect in reality. A quite decisive factor is their implementation through administrative action. This chapter looks at the steps which take place after legislation has been passed: Who does what and by which means to make sure that value decisions made in a legislative act do not only remain ‘law on the books’? Which rights exist in that context? How can they be protected? With other words, this chapter deals with sub-legislative setting of rules and making of decisions. It asks which principles and rules exist to ensure the legality and legitimacy of such action. [less ▲]

The existence or non-existence of procedural rules for executive rule-making in the EU is not merely a ‘technical’ question free of constitutional value choices. This article argues that constitutional principles such as transparency, openness and participatory democracy highlighted by the Treaty of Lisbon constitute decisive guidelines for the design of administrative procedures in the EU as they can have a considerable impact on substantive outcomes. We apply such principles with regard to non-legislative rule making procedures in the EU, highlight the salience of this discussion and argue that some systematization of non-legislative rule making procedures is needed in order to implement constitutional principles in a complex and plural environment.

This article is a contribution to the debate about the relation between the multiple sources of fundamental rights in the EU legal system. It argues in favour of a non-hierarchic, pluralistic understanding of these sources. The high practical relevance of this question is analysed by means of a case study of the right to good administration. The article discusses the difficulties in defining the scope of the right to good administration under the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the EU (CFR or the Charter) and that of the right to good administration as a general principle of EU law. In view of this case study, the article argues that adopting a pluralistic understanding of the EU fundamental rights’ sources allows for a clarification and improved understanding of the individual’s rights in the EU legal system.

This Article discusses the reality of executive rule-making procedures with trans-territorial effect, with other words, the creation of non-legislative rules which have an effect outside the territorial limits of the jurisdiction of origin. It maps the phenomenon, discusses some of its central challenges for the realization of general principles of law and considers possible legal approaches addressing these. One of the most important issues thereby is to find workable solutions in the context of the pluralism of sources of law – national, supranational and international. [less ▲]

The Treaty of Lisbon has put emphasis on a more strict separation of executive functions between the EU and the Member States. At the same time it attempts to concentrate more executive powers on the Union level in the hands of the Commission. This article argues that the Treaty of Lisbon’s innovations have some paradoxical effects. In reality they favour the ongoing diversification towards more hybrid and collaborative executive structures. The article discusses, from the point of view of an EU constitutional law, possible explanations and models for understanding and assessing the ongoing delegation of powers. [less ▲]

Dieser Artikel geht der Fragestellung nach, wie sich das EU Verfassungs- und Verwaltungsverfahrensrecht der EU im Hinblick auf übertragene Normsetzungsbefugnisse der EU in den ersten Jahren seit in Krafttretens des Vertrages von Lissabon entwickelt hat. Was muss in Zukunft geschehen, um Legalität und Legitimität dieser Form der Ausübung hoheitlicher Gewalt auf der Unionsebene zu gewährleisten? Der Artikel fragt nach den Bedingungen zum Erlass solcher Akte, administrativer, politischer und judikativer Kontrollmechanismen und potentieller Wirkung der verschiedenen Strukturen. Dazu analysiert er in einem ersten Teil die Unterscheidung des AEUV zwischen delegierten Rechtsakten nach Artikel 290 AEUV und Durchführungsrechtsakten nach Artikel 291 AEUV als den zwei verschiedenen Formen verbindlicher unter-gesetzlicher Rechtsakte der EU. Der Artikel geht dann auf die ersten Erfahrungen in der Realität der Gesetzgebungspraxis und die ersten Erfahrungen ein, die mit der Existenz dieser Formen gesammelt wurden. Dabei werden sowohl administrative, politische als auch Formen gerichtlicher Kontroll- und Einflussmöglichkeiten ins Auge gefasst. Der Artikel endet mit einem Ausblick auf die sich entwickelnde Debatte zu einem EU Verwaltungsverfahrensrecht, das im Hinblick auf die Artikel 290 und 291 AEUV gut daran täte, auch die Verwaltungsverfahren zu berücksichtigen, die auf eine exekutive abstrakt generelle Rechtsetzung zuarbeiten.
