The constitution isn't excluded from the norms of reference which the judges make use of in order to exercise the control of the administration acts. However, in France the control of constitutionality of the administrative acts are conditioned by the existence of a law that occasionally could intervene between the above said acts and the constitutionality as a "screen" that prevents those acts from being void, that being in accordance to the law are contrary to the constitution. This doctrine is questioned because it lacks efficiency in protecting the fundamental rights and the burst in of the European law within the French domestic legal system has strengthened the questioning.
