Parliamentary questions
PDF 100kWORD 25k
15 January 2018
Answer given by Ms Bieńkowska on behalf of the Commission
Question reference: E-005765/2017

The Commission recalls that the subsidiarity control mechanism laid down in Protocol No 2 to the Treaties obliges the Commission to react to national Parliaments' reasoned opinions when the thresholds set out in the procedures in Article 7 of Protocol No 2 are met. In addition, the Commission has decided to reply to all opinions from national Parliaments, including their reasoned opinions, in the framework of its political dialogue with the national Parliaments, launched in 2006. All replies to the reasoned opinions concerning the proposal for a directive on a proportionality test before adoption of the new regulation on professions(1) have been sent to the relevant national Parliaments and made public.

In this context, the Commission recalls that it publishes all opinions from national Parliaments, as well as the Commission's replies, on the Commission's website so that all interested parties and stakeholders have access to them, once an opinion has been received or a reply has been sent(2).
