Every modern legal order needs a set of general rules to enforce administrative law. These rules are “general” because they apply regardless of the specific subject area. They impose principles of action, of procedure and of organization of the authorities and form the core of the general administrative law.

The legal basis of such rules is quite different. Which rules are codified at which level can be explained in part by tradition, but in some cases it appears rather random. The presentation will analyze which consequences arise from the different degree of codification of the general administrative law. It will develop a framework how to approach such question in a comparative perspective
