Oxford University Press

This chapter is concerned with the principles of legal certainty and legitimate expectations. It begins with a discussion on the constraints placed on Community norms that have an actual retroactive effect. This is followed by differentiation of the other types of case where legal certainty and legitimate expectations are utilized and the rationale for affording legal protection. The chapter then analyses the law and policy applicable in these differing areas, including revocation of lawful and unlawful decisions; individual representations; representations and changes of policy; departure from existing policy; and unlawful representations.

Keywords:   legal certainty, legitimate expectations, Community norms, legal protection, law, policy, decisions, representations
