In accordance with article 42 of Territorial Law 14/1990 of July 26th, concerning the Legal Framework for Canarian Public Administrations (hereinafter, LRJAPC), the Insular Councils possess the inherent competences attributed to them as such in Law 7/1985 of April 2nd concerning the Regulation of the Fundaments of Local Government (hereinafter LBRL) and the laws governing the various sectors of public activity. Competences transferred to the Insular Councils via laws issued by the Parliament of the Canary Islands have the same consideration as inherent competences.

In accordance with Transitional Provision 3 of the LRJAPC, in order to make the exercise of competences transferred by Law operative, the corresponding Decree of Transferral must be passed by the Government of the Canary Islands, wherein the functions that are transferred, shared and reserved by the original body are detailed. Furthermore, in order to enable the Insular Councils to put the exercise of the transferred competences into effect, the Government of the Canary Islands, subsequent to an audience with the Insular Council in question, must also approve any appendixes accompanying the transferral, wherein the relevant human and material resources and means that have been transferred along with the new competences are detailed. Having approved and published the appendix, the Insular Council in question and the Autonomous Region are required to undersign the corresponding certificate of reception and delivery wherein the services, files, assets, personnel and resources that have been transferred are detailed.
