Exceptions and derogations

By virtue of the first paragraph of Article 275 TFEU, the Court of Justice does not have jurisdiction with respect to the provisions relating to the common foreign and security policy nor with respect to acts adopted on the basis of those provisions. However, the Court does have jurisdiction to monitor compliance with Article 40 TEU and to rule on appeals, brought in accordance with the conditions laid down in the fourth paragraph of Article 263 TFEU, reviewing the legality of decisions providing for Sportwetten Gutschein restrictive measures against natural or legal persons adopted by the Council on the basis of Chapter 2 of Title V of the Treaty on European Union (Article 275, paragraph 2, TFEU). Furthermore, the Court of Justice does not have jurisdiction to review the validity or proportionality of operations carried out by the police or other law enforcement services of a Member State or the exercise of the responsibilities incumbent upon Member States with regard to the maintenance of law and order and the safeguarding of internal security (Article 276 TFEU, see former Article 35 TEU). The entry into force of the Treaty of Lisbon led to the deletion of Article 35 TEU, which provided for exceptional preliminary ruling proceedings for police and judicial cooperation in criminal matters. These proceedings were optional, in the sense that a Member State had to explicitly accept them. Furthermore, the Member State could choose to authorise all Wettanbieter Test courts to request preliminary rulings, or only the highest courts. In accordance with Article 10, paragraph 1, of the Protocol on transitional provisions, the powers of the Court of Justice under Title VI TEU, in the version in force before the entry into force of the Treaty of Lisbon, shall remain the same for five years, i.e. until 1 December 2014, including where they have been accepted under Article 35 (2) TEU.
