Article 173

The Court of Justice shall review the legality of acts of the Council and the Commission other than recommendations or opinions . It shall for this purpose have jurisdiction in actions brought by a Member State , the Council or the Commission on grounds of lack of competence , infringement of an essential procedural requirement , infringement of this Treaty or of any rule of law relating to its application , or misuse of powers .

Any natural or legal person may , under the same conditions , institute proceedings against a decision addressed to that person or against a decision which , although in the form of a regulation or a decision addressed to another person , is of direct and individual concern to the former .

The proceedings provided for in this Article shall be instituted within two months of the publication of the measure , or of its notification to the plaintiff , or , in the absence thereof , of the day on which it came to the knowledge of the latter , as the case may be .
