The relationship between governmental bodies and citizens is governed by administrative law. The framework for the Dutch administrative law is provided for in the Dutch General Administrative Law Act (Algemene wet bestuursrecht). These rules are often procedural in nature. In special national and decentralised regulations, the substantive rules are further specified. This often makes it a complex matter to find the applicable laws and regulations.
