Interparliamentary EU information exchange (IPEX)
The Interparliamentary EU information exchange (IPEX) is a platform and a network for the electronic exchange of EU-related information between Parliaments in the European Union.
Launched as an initiative of EU national Parliaments and developed with the technical assistance of the European Parliament, IPEX has served as a document database containing draft legislative proposals, consultation and information documents from the European Commission, parliamentary documents and information concerning the European Union. IPEX offers at the same time the possibility to follow the subsidiarity check deadlines.
IPEX has progressively developed into a network that provides the Parliaments of the EU the most suitable tools and solutions for their activities in the interparliamentary cooperation and oversight on the EU actions. IPEX contains a calendar of interparliamentary meetings and events in the European Union, a section on national Parliaments and the European Parliament with links provided to the relevant websites and databases, as well as information on specific procedures in national Parliaments.
IPEX also hosts the website of EU Speakers Conference and all other interparliamentary Conferences, including COSAC, and an increasing number information on multilateral parliamentary fora and dedicated networks.
With 39 Chambers of 27 national Parliaments and the European Parliament using it daily, IPEX is "the one stop shop" for information on interparliamentary activities in the EU.
