The Supreme Administrative Court of the Czech Republic repeatedly dealt with the issue whether binding expert opinions can be legally reviewed.
In 2008, the Court concluded that the binding expert opinions issued pursuant to Act No. 114/1992 Gazette on the Protection of Nature and the Landscape, as amended later, cannot be reviewed by a court. Nevertheless at that time the administrative rules entering in force in 1967 had been in force. In August 2011, the Court decided that the binding expert opinions issued pursuant to the new administrative rules (2004) cannot be individually reviewed by a court. The decision was explained by the substantial changes in the legal provision by adopting the new administrative rules and by consequent amendment to the laws covering the particular components of the environment.
