Written declarations: the concept

A written declaration is a text of a maximum of 200 words relating exclusively on a matter falling within the competence of the European Union. They do not, however, bind Parliament, that is, they cannot be considered as an act of the Parliament representing its position, but only those of its authors and signatories.

Written declarations: procedure

  • At least 10 Members from at least three political groups may, as authors, submit a written declaration by presenting a text to be signed by their colleagues.
  • Written declarations may not go beyond the form of a declaration and are subject to admissibility criteria (see Rule 136).
  • Declarations are entered in a public register accessible through Parliament's website.
  • If, at the end of a three month period from its entry into the register, the declaration is signed by a majority of the Members of the European Parliament, it is published in the minutes and forwarded to the EU Institutions named in the text, together with the names of the signatories.
  • Declarations that, at the end of the three month period, have not been signed by at least half the Members of the European Parliament lapse.
  • For further information see : Rules of Procedure: Rule 136.

Written declarations: distribution

  • Written declarations are published in the official languages and available on Parliament's website.
