A committee is permitted to organise a hearing with experts, where this is considered essential to its work on a particular subject. Hearings can also be held jointly by two or more committees. Most committees organise regular hearings, as they allow them to hear from experts and hold discussions on the key issues.

On 20 June 2017, from 11.00 to 12.30, the Committee on Legal Affairs held a public hearing on Hearing on The Insolvency Proposal. The aim of the hearing was that Members should acquire a more complete and detailed understanding of the impact that the proposal may have on the different stakeholders concerned: debtors, creditors, SMEs, workers, practitioners in the field, etc. with a view to its improvement.

For this purpose, five expert speakers were invited to present their views at the hearing: Ms Leticia GAYO, BBVA Spain, Head of Risk and Banking Business Legal Services; Mr Luc HENDRICKX, UEAPME, Responsible for Competitiveness of Enterprises, External Relations and Legal Affairs; Mr Peter SCHERRER, ETUC, Deputy Secretary General; Mr Axel BIERBACH, German insolvency practitioner, and Ms Valérie LELOUP-THOMAS, French insolvency practitioner. The hearing included a discussion with Members with the participation of Ms Aurélia PERDEREAU, administrateur judiciaire, and of the Commission.
