The Secretariat’s establishment plan and the internal administrative rules for officials and other staff are drawn up by the Bureau. The employees are mostly officials recruited by competition from all the EU countries. They are in the service of the European Parliament.

The Secretariat’s task is to coordinate legislative work and organise plenary sittings and meetings. It also provides technical and expert assistance to parliamentary bodies and Members of Parliament to support them in the exercise of their mandates. The European Parliament must also provide a fully multilingual service for all plenary sittings and meetings.
