Subordinate Legislation; Completeness Test; Sufficiency of Standard Test

As regards to the exercise of the power by the administrative bodies, this is justified under subordinate
legislation. Either to provide details in so far as laws already passed by Congress in order to effectively implement
them or to provide for limitations or parameters within which the law can be enforced. The important, take note of
the test that it has to be complete before it is delegated to the administrative body, that nothing is left to the discretion
of the administrative body to determine what the law is but simply to implement it by promulgating the rules and
regulation having the force and effect of law.
Another limitation is on the sufficiency of standards. So the standard has to be sufficient so that the
administrative bodies can be guided accordingly. Now take note of some of the cases. That case of Imbong v. Ochoa,
regarding on guidelines given to the matter of determining contraceptives. And that of the case of Disini, with
respect to that committee given the power to promulgate rules and regulation in order to define the parameters, in
order to implement the provisions of the Anti-cybercrime law. The SC was saying that there was no violation of
delegation of the power because there was a standard that wa sufficient, second, the law is complete in itself, what the
committee will do is simply to implement the law.
