EU Law and the Discretion of Private National Decision-Makers, in Light of the Court’s Judgment in Case C-22/18, TopFit and Biffi

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This contribution aims to introduce the reader to a judgement from the Court of Justice which seems to broaden the scope of application of EU free movement rules to private regulatory bodies in two ways. On the one hand, this judgment expands our understanding of what type of private regulation can fall within this scope. On the other hand, it shows that EU law requires a private prior authorisation scheme to be infused with the same objectivity safeguards as those that have been required for public ones.
