The essay addressed the access to the Court of Justice of the EU by Regions in the annulment procedures, according to art. 263, c. 4, TFEU. Regions are granted the status of non-privileged applicants so they can appeal the CJEU only in very limited and specific cases. The essay analyses the case law highlighting different jurisprudential approaches and it discusses the recent proposal by Advocate General Bobek in order to revisit in a less formalistic way the locus standi of Regions before the CJEU
