Principle 174 of the Constitution has granted the General Inspection Organization the authority to supervise the institutions in terms of the implementation of laws and the good running of affairs. The concept of monitoring the good running of affairs has many ambiguities. Apart from the inherent linguistic ambiguities, in practice, they have not provided rules to determine what is going on in good manner, and in this way, the detection of this matter has been solely entrusted to the inspectors of the inspection organization. This is especially important because the organization can give enforceable suggestions to the institutions based on its interpretation of the good running of affairs, and the non-implementation of the suggestions will guarantee criminal execution for the managers of the institutions, regardless of whether they are expertly They agree or disagree with the proposed suggestion. The present article, with a descriptive-analytical method, seeks to identify the concept and limitations of the supervision of the inspection organization on the good running of affairs in the legal system of the Islamic Republic of Iran. Among the various solutions, it seems that the best way is to set standards by the inspection organization and the judiciary, so that every administrative decision that follows those standards is subject to the good flow of affairs, and decisions outside of this process can be reviewed and corrected by this organization.
