Who does what?
The 1972 Autonomy Statute transferred a whole range of legislative and administrative competencies to the province of South Tyrol.
A differentiation is made between primary and secondary competencies as well as the competencies of the state.
Within these areas the province must adhere to the principles set down by the state. South Tyrol may decide on the details. The tolerance is much smaller than for primary competencies.
South Tyrol’s primary competencies
- Vocational training
- Social affairs
- Local public transport
- Civil defence
- Nature parks
Within these areas South Tyrol can issue laws without having to give consideration to state laws. Laws in the province must however correspond to the principles required by the constitution and the European Union.
