Administrative procedure relates to the methods and processes before administrative agencies, as distinguished from judicial procedure, which applies to courts. The administrative procedure can be defined as a succession of acts and operations issued or performed by an administrative body on its own motion or upon request, in order to adjudicate on rights, interests, and obligations of parties of the procedure or decide based on the public interest, according to the laws and other regulations in force. There is no widely recognized definition of the administrative procedure – many General Administrative Procedure Acts (GAPAs) only refer to the term and do not define “administrative procedure” as such (except the German GAPA and the Portuguese GAPA).
