Where no opinion is delivered during a vote at a regular committee the Commission may submit the draft implementing act to the Appeal Committee for further deliberation. The Appeal Committee functions like the other Comitology Committees (made up of EU Member State's representatives, chaired by the Commission, same voting rules). It is not a permanent body, but rather a procedural tool which gives EU Member States the opportunity to have a second discussion at a higher level of representation.
Only for the following sections have Appeal Committees been organised. By clicking on the name you will be redirected to the page where you can find the agendas and summary reports of the different meetings.
