This web site shows opinions given by national Parliaments on new Commission proposals and consultation papers as well as the response of the Commission to these opinions. It should be noted that positive opinions do not get a detailed response.
Currently the website contains only the most recent opinions received. Commission Services are working to progressively include opinions since the start of the political dialogue with the national Parliaments in September 2006.
The site is divided into pages for each Member State and then sub-divided by year (with reference to the year of adoption of the Commission's original proposal or consultation paper, and not to the year of adoption of a national Parliament's opinion). In the event that a national Parliament has sent an opinion where no such reference document exists, the item will be posted under the heading "own initiative opinion". National Parliaments' opinions and Commission replies are published in all languages in which they are available.
