Thailand’s Administrative law governs the activities of the government’s administrative entities and the officials working at those agencies. Actions of government agencies range from making rules to adjudicating and enforcing regulatory agendas.
Administrative law deals with how administrative units of the government, such as boards or commissions make decisions that are part of the national regulatory scheme. Areas involved include the environment, immigration, manufacturing, trade, Building and Zoning Laws in Thailand, Government Licenses, Environment Laws and many others.
The need for this body of laws arose in Thailand and around the world as increasing numbers of government entities were formed to regulate the economic, social and political spheres of activity. The Thai Administrative Court was established under provisions of the Act on the Establishment of Administrative Courts and Administrative Court Procedures of B.E. 2542 (1999).
The Court generally conducts reviews of decisions in matters of administrative law, including matters such as judicial reviews. The court’s jurisdiction covers unlawful acts committed by an administrative agency or official, including acts that are beyond the realm of authority or law, inconsistency under the law, or bad faith, among others.
It also covers an official’s neglect or unreasonable delay in performing their official duties, the wrongful acts of an administrative agency, administrative contracts, unlawful mandates and injunctions. Changes in Thailand’s legal system can make it difficult for businesses in both the interpretation and application of the law.
