The recent change of the nature of crime and the necessity to improve legal investigation instruments have caused essential quantitative and qualitative transformation of the institution of mandates. It has revealed some problem issues connected with the limits of such a delegation of investigator’s authority. Obviously, there are procedural powers which can’t be delegated. According to the law,  formulation of proceeding decisions is one of the powers that can’t be delegated. However, a necessity to urgently formulate a procedural decision as the result of legal investigative activities based on an investigator’s mandate can occur. The purpose of this research is to define the criteria of observation of the limits of investigator’s mandate as a way of delegating procedural authorities. The research methodology is based on the dialectical method of scientific cognition, the comparative-legal, logical-analytical, formal-logical and system-structural methods of studying legal phenomena and processes in the field of criminal procedure. The author’s particularly important contribution is the analysis of the compliance of the formalization of the institution of investigator’s mandate with the requirements of the modern investigative practice. The article considers the types of investigator’s mandates, analyzes the existing scientific opinions on this issue, gives examples of errors of law and legal gaps. 

Keywords: investigations, body inquiries, investigator, delegation of authority, the authority to proceedings, limits the Commission of the investigator, order of the investigator, the subjects of delegation, subject delegate, admissible evidence
