  • Judgment 1660


    83rd Session, 1997
    European Free Trade Association
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 9

    Extract:

    "The Association's third objection is that the complainants are challenging the adoption of rules and in any event cannot impute any present injury thereto. According to precedent an international civil servant may in exceptional circumstances challenge the lawfulness of a rule that has been applied to him. The notification to the complainants of the changes in the system of reckoning and paying their retirement pensions constituted individual application of rules adopted by the member States of EFTA and set out in the contract with [a private insurance company]. Even though, as the defendant says, the complainants cannot yet show any injury, they do have a cause of action and may challenge, howsoever they wish, the lawfulness of the new pension rules."

    Consideration 11

    Extract:

    Insofar as the seven Member States continued to be jointly responsible for the Staff Insurance Scheme (SIS) "the delegation of authority was quite proper. What is more, it was quite understandable since the seven countries still owed the serving and the retired staff joint responsibility for safeguarding their entitlements. That is how the three departing countries were associated in the decisions of the future of the SIS. Besides, the decisions were unanimous, and there can have been no procedural flaw in the mere attendance - which was highly desirable anyway - of representatives of the former Member States as well." The plea of incompetence must, therefore, be rejected.

  • Judgment 1658


    83rd Session, 1997
    European Patent Organisation
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Considerations 4 and 5

    Extract:

    "The complainant asks the Tribunal to adjourn the case until a decision has been taken by the [...] Administrative Council of the EPO - on his application for referral of Judgment 1333 [...] to the International Court of Justice for an advisory opinion. [...] The Tribunal asked the Organisation what was the status of any application from the complainant to the Administrative Council for such referral. The Organisation replied [...] enclosing a copy of a letter that the Chairman of its Council had written to the complainant [...] explaining that the conditions for such referral were not fulfilled: the Council was satisfied, said its Chairman, that the Tribunal had been competent to hear the case and that there had been no fundamental fault in the procedure followed. Since the complainant's application for referral to the court has been refused the Tribunal will now take up the case."

    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 5

    Extract:

    The Tribunal may not order the Chairman of the EPO's Council to offer him an apology. It "is not competent to issue an order of that kind to the authorities of an international organisation."

  • Judgment 1118


    71st Session, 1991
    European Organisation for the Safety of Air Navigation
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Considerations 10 and 11

    Extract:

    The organisation submits that the Tribunal is not competent to entertain a challenge to measures taken by the Permanent Commission, which is a legislative body. "An organisation may of course freely decide what its staff regulations are to say and what the structure of its secretariat is to be. But once it has laid those administrative foundations the political and administrative bodies that frame personnel policy have a duty as employer at all times and more particularly when amending conditions of service to abide by [the] general principles [of the international civil service]. As it stated in Judgment 986 [...], under 2, the Tribunal is fully competent when the relationship between the organisation and its staff is at issue, subject only to Article XII of its Statute."

  • Judgment 936


    65th Session, 1988
    European Patent Organisation
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 17

    Extract:

    "the conclusion is that the council's approval of the new scales is null and void for two reasons: because no reasons for it are stated, and because it takes into account a factor, the dutch levy, that the rules in force in the organisation do not provide for."

    Consideration 18

    Extract:

    "the decisions determining the complainants' pay are therefore void because they rest on an invalid general decision of the council's."

    consequence; decision; decision quashed; executive body; flaw; general decision; individual decision; judicial review;



  • Judgment 809


    61st Session, 1987
    United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 16

    Extract:

    "the director-general omitted to consult the executive board of unesco before taking his decision, though article 54 of the board's rules of procedure reads: 'the director-general shall consult the members of the executive board with regard to the appointment or renewal of a contract of officials at d.1 and above whose posts come under the regular budget of the organization.'" the decision to appoint the complainant to an unclassified post is therefore tainted with a fatal flaw.

  • Judgment 751


    59th Session, 1986
    European Patent Organisation
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 3

    Extract:

    "the plea that no reasons were given for the impugned decision is also unsound. there can be no obligation whatever on the epo to state its reasons for introducing scales approved by the council. such a decision finds its justification quite simply in the administration's position of subordination to the council."

    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 1

    Extract:

    "the council's 'guidelines', inasmuch as they set objective and binding criteria and do not offer mere guidance, are binding on the president insofar as they do not allow him discretionary authority."

    European Patent Organisation

    Consideration 7

    Extract:

    in this case, the office took the view that the council's new guidelines on how professional experience should count in the reckoning of seniority did not apply to the complainant. "the epo was therefore under no duty to inform the complainant of the guidelines or to explain to him how his own position differed from that of staff members to whom the guidelines applied."

  • Judgment 726


    58th Session, 1986
    European Patent Organisation
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Summary

    Extract:

    the complainants are impugning the decision by the administrative council of the epo to impose a temporary levy of 1.5 per cent on staff members' salaries. the tribunal holds that the council's decision falls within the scope of its powers. inasmuch as the levy is temporary and very small and there is a guarantee of nominal basic salary, the tribunal concludes that there was no breach of the complainants' acquired rights.

  • Judgment 669


    56th Session, 1985
    European Patent Organisation
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Summary

    Extract:

    the impugned decision is one of the administrative council. the tribunal has ruled that cases challenging a general decision are irreceivable, since such a decision must ordinarily be followed by individual decisions against which appeal does lie.

    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 4

    Extract:

    "the tribunal has such competence as is conferred on it by article ii of its statute. decisions under article xii and the annex [on submissions to the international court of justice for advisory opinion] fall outside the scope of its competence. in fact, although article ii, paragraph 7, empowers the tribunal to rule on its own competence, its ruling is subject to the right of the governing body of an international organisation to seek review if it believes that the tribunal has exceeded its jurisdiction or committed a fundamental error of procedure."

    Consideration 8

    Extract:

    "according to article ii of its statute the tribunal may hear complaints alleging non-observance of the official's terms of appointment or of the staff regulations. having only such competence as is conferred upon it, it may not entertain matters out with the ambit of that article. it is therefore not competent to invite the fao council to address the international court of justice."

    European Patent Organisation
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 1

    Extract:

    "where the guidelines properly modify the requirements of the service regulations they confer on the president an authority of his own which he exercises in the general interest and as befits the particular circumstances. [...] the wording of the guidelines is such that they cannot be treated as nothing more than standards or goals [...] they set objective and binding criteria for deciding on individual staff cases, and, while not ignoring the president's discretionary authority, the tribunal will review the application of the rules the council has laid down."

    Consideration 5

    the applicable staff rule says that it is the administrative council which may decide to reclassify a post on a proposal by the president. as the president saw no reason for regrading the complainant, he had no proposal to put to the council.

    World Health Organization

    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 4

    Extract:

    "the executive board adopted the french version of [who staff rule] 1030.3.4, and the executive board alone could amend it. instead it was the director-general who decided to alter the french text, and the fact that he did is immaterial since according to rule 020 the director-general's authority is limited to making proposals for amendment. [...] accordingly, his so-called 'correction' is in itself null and void. either he discovers an error, and the original text must be applied; or else he alters the adopted text without being competent to do so."

    39th Session, 1977
    International Patent Institute
    Extracts: EN, FR
    Full Judgment Text: EN, FR

    Consideration 3

    Extract:

    the administrative council's declaration which the complainant cites is a document that "does not have the force of a rule but merely affords guidance." and although the "general principles" approved by the administrative council "give [the director-general] guidance ... they also respect his discretionary authority and the tribunal must acknowledge that by not going beyond the scope of its minimum power of review."

    Consideration 22

    Extract:

    "council decisions in staff matters are to be read as an instruction to the director-general. it is his duty to put them into a form which clearly conveys to the official in precisely what way his rights are affected. it is the director-general's decision which the official is entitled to have..."

    Keywords:

    decision; duty to inform; enforcement; executive body; executive head;

    Consideration 25

    Extract:

    according to the organization "the decision impugned was taken by one of the governing bodies of the fao in the exercise of its constitutional powers and represented a legislative enactment. ...the term 'governing body' is not a term used in the constitution of the fao and there is no definition of what it means." the council is the executive organ of the conference, which is the organization's supreme body. the constitution gives the council such powers as the conference may delegate to it. "there is no assertion in the organization's reply of the delegation of any power that would justify the council in depriving any official of any part of the salary to which under the regulations he or she is entitled."
