Law of Administrative Procedure of the European Union: European Added Value Assessment (+ Annexes I-III)

15-10-2012

Article 298 TFEU and the Charter of Fundamental Rights establish a right of citizens to good administration. However, the current legal framework is fragmented, patchy and uneven and the detailed provisions needed to enforce this right are lacking. This assessment argues that a Regulation constituting a general Law of Administrative Procedure would bring significant added value. ANNEXES: I- Enforcing citizens' right to good administration: time for action. II- Aspects relating to added value for citizens and economic operators. III- Aspects relating to the efficiency of the EU administration.
