One of the core areas of national administrative proceedings and decision-making that concerns investments and commercial activities more generally is the granting, supervision, and termination of concessions, licenses and other administrative acts. This chapter looks at the termination of such public acts in detail and examines whether there are certain general features or principles that apply in the proceedings in the countries examined. The focus is on a number of countries with a highly sophisticated regulatory framework for energy, i.e., the EU and the EFTA Member States and the United States. In addition to the national comparisons, another source of international administrative law is also examined: that of EU law.
