Taking decisions affecting a person’s right to carry on a business, trade or profession
Convention rights and issues I need to consider
Article 6 Right to fair trial, Protocol No. 1 Article 1 Protection of property
- Is there a legal basis for the decision?
- Is there a public interest in the decision?
- Does the decision strike a fair balance between the individual and the general interest?
- Does the individual have the right to challenge the decision before an independent and impartial tribunal?
References to article numbers are to the European Convention on Human Rights except where a Protocol is specified.
The issues listed are not exhaustive.
Do you touch on any of the Convention rights in your work?
