This chapter focuses on the specificity of the operation of the principle of conferral within EC external relations, as compared with internal Community competences. The most significant particularity is the great importance of the doctrine of implied competences. The chapter is divided into three sections, analysing respectively external competences explicitly granted to the Community in the EC Treaty, external competences not spelled out literally in the EC Treaty, but inferred from its text, and external competences based on general legal bases.
