  • Legal activity of public administrations;
  • Common bases of all administrative procedures;
  • The administrative procedure;
  • Challenges of administrative acts through administrative channels;
  • Tort liability of the State;
  • Special administrative procedures to exercise the power to penalize;
  • Challenge of disciplinary procedures unless these are subject to their own regulations and this Code is applied secondarily.
  • Coercive enforcement;
  • Challenges of administrative acts through administrative channels and coercive proceedings – only the rules of this Code will apply.
