While the EU agencies that have been granted the power to adopt binding
decisions are a diverse group, they at least share one feature: in all
of them an organisationally separate administrative review body, i.e. a
board of appeal, has been established. The review procedures before
these boards must be exhausted before private parties can seize the EU
courts and the boards therefore all fulfil a similar function: filtering
cases before they end up before the courts and providing parties by
expert-driven review. Sharing this common function as well as some
common features, the boards of appeal of the different agencies remain
heterogenous in their set up and functioning. This raises a host of
questions from both a theoretic and practical perspective which this
volume analyses in depth: how do the boards function, which kind of
review do they offer, and how should they be conceptualized in the EU's
overall system of legal protection against administrative action? To
answer these questions, the volume's first part presents a series of
case studies, covering all the EU boards of appeal currently in
existence, while a second part looks into the horizontal issues raised
by the phenomenon of the boards of appeal.
