Abstract: At the beginning of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, the European Court of Human Rights ruled and then extended the decision to suspend part of its activity, as well as certain procedural time-limits, including time-limit for referral to the Court through the means of a state or an individual application. These measures do not comply with the European Convention on Human Rights, nor with the Rules of the Court. The control of the regularity of these measures may be exercised by the judicial formations of the Court, acting in the specific cases.

Keywords: European Court of Human Rights, suspension of activities, suspension of procedural time-limits, regularity of the suspension, control of the regularity of the suspension.
