Procedure for appealing the decisions, actions or inactions of state supervision (control) bodies

In case of an administrative appeal, the appeal letter shall contain the following information:
  • The body whose decisions, actions or inactions are appealed.
  • Subject of the appeal letter - the decisions, actions or inactions of the supervision body.
  • Legitimate demand of the claimer.  
The appeal letter shall be accompanied by the copies of materials supporting the facts set out therein.

Court appeal is more effective. However, the form and content of the appeal letter shall meet special legal requirements.

In this regard, we recommend that you contact Pravova Dopomoga Law Firm, whose lawyers, in addition to appealing the decisions, actions or inactions of the state supervision (control) bodies can also help you to recover material and moral damage caused by illegal decisions, actions or inactions of the authority.

Thus, it’s worth remembering that according to part 2 of Article 21 of the Code of Administrative Proceedings of Ukraine, claim for damages caused by wrongful decisions, actions or inactions of the authority or by other infringement of the rights, freedom and interests of subjects of public law shall be considered by the administrative court if they are consolidated with the public dispute resolution proceedings. Otherwise, claims concerning compensation for damages are decided by civil or economic courts.

In addition, you should pay attention to a rather common misconception of the wording: “appeal against the act”, “appeal against the protocol on administrative violation”. Many people think that these documents represent the decisions of a state authority, as they are recorded on paper. No. They are procedural documents, recording certain facts. They cannot be appealed. In this case, you can appeal against the actions of the tax inspector, the traffic policeman responsible for the preparation of the abovementioned documents.

The regulatory authorities (law enforcement agencies) make their decisions on the basis of the abovementioned documents, which as a rule (but not always), make the basis, for example, for the tax notification-decisions or resolutions in case of an administrative offence. And in this case, it is the decision of the state authorities that shall be appealed.

By the way, when talking about administrative offences, people often ask us about the act to be used when preparing a suit to court for illegal actions, when they have a clearly wrongly drawn up protocol, but the resolution hasn’t been made yet: Shallit be the Code of Administrative Proceedings of Ukraine or the Code of Ukraine on Administrative Offences?
