Enforcement – Exercise 6

Page: 123 Chapter: Part 5, F. 6.

Suggested solution:

No, the plea of illegality is a mere argument that can be used in a procedure before the Court of Justice (Wöhrmann). According to the wording of Art. 277 TFEU, any act of general application can be challenged by any party. However, in principle, this is possible only if the act could not have been challenged under Art. 263 TFEU (annulment procedure), though with the exception of privileged applicants in relation to a regulation (Spain v Council).
