Evaluation of articles 8:69a and 6:22 Awb

Examination of the relativity requirement and bypassing defects in (legal) practice (full text only available in Dutch)


The Act to Amend Administrative Procedural Law [Wab] went into effect on 1 January 2013. The Wab led to a number of changes in administrative procedural law, which streamlined proceedings and encouraged the effective, final settlement of disputes, among other things. Two changes are examined in this research. First of all, the amendment of article 6:22 of the General Administrative Law Act [Awb], which offered greater freedom to bypass defects in a decision. The second change relates to article 8:69a Awb and the introduction of a relativity requirement. The evaluation of article 6:22 Awb was promised by the government in the First Chamber. The evaluation of article 8:69a Awb is laid down in article 1a, Part C of the Wab.
