Administrative Procedures in EU External Trade Law

15-03-2011

This study provides an analysis of the current state of play as regards EU administrative law in the field of trade policy. This is an established area of EU policy, in which a range of administrative-type measures are adopted at central EU level. The study first attempts to define the scope of the EU’s administrative law in trade matters. It subsequently explores whether there are any best practices in this field, which may be relevant to other areas of EU administrative law, or which may inspire horizontal, codifying legislation.
