    “Short-Selling” represents the up-to-date non-delegation doctrine in the post-Lisbon era. The Court of Justice of the EU (CJEU) now authorizes a far-reaching delegation of competences (legally binding and of general application) to EU agencies, provided that their exercise is detailed, circumscribed by conditions that limit the agency’s discretion and subjected to judicial review. Close consideration must be given to key differences between the agency at hand in “Short-Selling” (an internal market agency – European Securities and Markets Authority) and the conferral of operational powers to agencies in the Area of Freedom, Security and Justice like the EBCG, whose activities may give rise to national sovereignty concerns and fundamental rights implications.
