The New Frontiers of EU Administrative Law: Is There an Accountability Gap in EU External Relations?

[en] The legal status of binding and non-binding international decisions adopted by global regulatory bodies in EU law, their authority (as acknowledged in the case law of the CJEU) and legal effects allow one to characterise them as the external administrative layer of EU law-making.
Mega-regional agreements, of which the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA)
is an instance, have the potential to expand this tier of aw. This article maps the substantive legal effects of international decisions in EU law as expounded by the CJEU, arguing that the case law the Court developed is transposable to future decisions of CETA bodies. Furthermore, it contrasts their possible substantive impact in EU law with the weaknesses of procedural controls over the exercise of public authority by those bodies.
