© European Parliament (2017)
All you need to know about the ordinary legislative procedure in one handy document

Parliament's revamped handbook on the ordinary legislative procedure, which covers all the key steps inside Parliament and includes updated guidance on inter-institutional legislative negotiations and Parliament's Rules of Procedure, has been published in 23 EU languages (available below), on behalf of the European Parliament Vice-Presidents responsible for conciliation, Ms Mairead McGUINNESS, Ms Katarina BARLEY and Ms Nicola BEER and the Chair of the Conference of Committee Chairs, Mr Antonio TAJANI.

The Handbook is both a useful introductory document and a handy reference manual. It provides general introductions and detailed background information and takes into account important developments since the previous version of November 2017.
