anagement of the society – one of the most important problems of the state, thus the state represented by bodies and officials for the achievement of this task has to work effectively. For this purpose it is necessary to define not only concept of effective management and cornerstone criteria, but also concept and requirements to the management subject – administration which has to cope with this task. Article represents the legislative bases review of the doctrine of good administration in the EU countries, and also opinions of scientists on disputable aspects of this doctrine. In particular, in the article parallels between earlier assumed purposes of the doctrine and established by law. It appears that the new purposes of the doctrine are established only in public interests and for preservation of the European Union integrity. In article concepts of effective management and good administration, as subject of the specified activity are compared. In the article some elements of the doctrine of good administration are considered. Their legal sense is investigated and author's understanding of their value is given. It is noted that principles as elements of the doctrine form the corresponding rights and duties which explains how the concrete principle can be applied to the subject (activity) of administrative legal relations. Within the studied doctrine standards of appropriate behavior of the public employee in the EU countries and similar rules for public servants in the Russian Federation were studied. In the conclusion author concludes that it is impossible to apply the unified European standards in Russian Federation, which is due to the developed organization of the public service in Russian Federation. In the article it is noted positive influence of the doctrine of good administration on the EU in general, despite various interpretations of the doctrine elements in the legislation of member countries.
