The Constitutional Council and Supranational Law

The Council intervenes mainly at the stage of incorporation of supranational
law into national law. However, the constitutional judge is also
called upon to follow the implementation of supranational law at the
national level. On the one hand, it controls the constitutional conformity
of supranational norms, together with the procedural consistency
of the conclusion of international commitments. On the other hand, it
sees to the primacy of supranational norms over national legislative
norms, as well as to the primacy of the constitution over supranational norms. There is, therefore, a real complementarity between the
Constitutional Council and the other national jurisdictions as far as the
taking into account of supranational law is concerned. The Constitutional
Council guarantees preventively the primacy of the Constitution
over treaties, while ordinary jurisdictions guarantee a posteriori the
primacy of treaties over the laws.
