Madrid, June 21, 2007.-the General Secretariat for public administration, Consuelo Sánchez Naranjo.

Annex instructions for the application of the Basic Statute of the public employee within the scope of the General Administration of the State and its public agencies into force on 13 May of law 7/2007, of 12 April, which approves the Basic Statute of the public employee (in later EBEP), advised to issue general instructions containing the interpretation criteria necessary to achieve a coordinated and homogenous management responsible for performance of human resources, primarily in relation to: precepts of EBEP which are in force and are therefore directly applicable in the scope of the General Administration of the State and its public agencies, as well as provisions of the rules of civil service, which remain in force until the adoption of the law on public function of the General Administration of the State and its public bodies (hereinafter law on civil service of the AGE) as it is not contrary to provisions of the EBEP.

Specific subjects of the civil service regime with regard to which the Statute introduces some new well since its entry into force, well once approved the law of civil service of the AGE.

To this end, the General Secretariat for public administration, in exercise of the powers which are conferred in article 8.a) of Royal Decree 9/2007, of 12 January, dictates the following instructions: 1. applicable regulations until the enactment of the law on civil service of the General Administration of the State the fourth final provision of the EBEP establishes its entry into force in phases to provide that «shall enter into force within the period of a» month following its publication in the official bulletin of the State"but with the exception of various precepts, which"will produce effects after the entry into force of the laws of civil service that are handed down in development of this Statute".

For its part, the sole repeal provision of the EBEP derogates specifically certain provisions with the status of law that have the scope of the regime of the public service regulations, although specifying that those provisions "are hereby repealed to the extent laid down in the fourth final provision», for this purpose, establishes in its third paragraph: «until issued civil service laws and the regulations of development shall remain in force in each public administration standards under existing management, planning and human resources management as is not contrary to the provisions of this Statute.»

The repeal will have the scope that expressly provided and shall extend always to all that in the new law on the same subject, is incompatible with the previous.»

As a result, the repeal provision of the EBEP is not absolute, but it is determined as provided in the third section of its fourth final provision.

Want this say that the legislator, as he has not had an automatic entry into force of all the provisions of the EBEP, also opted for an automatic repeal of the existing legislation on public service, but that certain provisions shall remain in force «until issued civil service laws and the regulations of development» and «as is not contrary to the provisions of this Statute».
