In the case of international agreements whose conclusion requires Parliament`s approval, the Commission sends to Parliament, during the negotiation process, all relevant information that it also makes available to the Council (or the special committee appointed by the Council). These include draft amendments to the negotiating directives adopted, draft negotiating texts, agreed articles, the date agreed for the paragraph of the agreement and the text of the agreement to be signed. The Commission sends to Parliament and to the Council (or to the special committee appointed by the Council) all relevant documents it receives from third parties, subject to the author`s agreement. The Commission informs the relevant parliamentary committee of the progress of the negotiations and explains in particular how Parliament`s views have been taken into account. The nominees for the position of Executive Director of regulatory agencies are expected to attend the hearings of the parliamentary committee. The transmission of the EUCI, classified as “TR-S SECRET EU/EU TOP SECRET”, is subject to other agreements between the Commission and the parliamentary body/office holder that submitted the application in order to guarantee a level of protection corresponding to this classification. The Commission is committed to rapidly launching the EU`s annual and multi-year programme to conclude inter-institutional agreements, in accordance with Article 17 of the Tue. If the Commission considers this to be necessary, the Commission may present to the two branches of the budgetary authority an ad hoc amendment letter in order to update the figures underlying the forecast state of agricultural expenditure in the draft budget and/or to correct the amounts and their distribution between the operational posts of international fisheries agreements and the reserve, based on the most recent information available on the fisheries agreements in force on 1 January of the relevant financial year. As part of the legislative procedure on fisheries agreements, the institutions undertake to do everything in their power to ensure that all procedures are implemented as quickly as possible. They also identify proposals and initiatives on which information must be communicated to the Conference of Presidents or communicated appropriately to the relevant parliamentary committee or its president.

When a parliamentary committee changes its draft agenda or agenda, the Commission is immediately informed. In particular, parliamentary committees strive to meet a reasonable period of time to allow members of the Commission to attend their meetings. The Commission simultaneously and in due course informs the Council and Parliament of their intention to propose to the Council the suspension and the reasons for an international agreement. The procedure begins with a trilogue meeting convened in a timely manner to enable the institutions to reach an agreement by the date set by the Council for the drafting of the budget. The Commission ensures that, in accordance with the provisions of this annex, Parliament has access to confidential information when it receives a request for the transmission of confidential information from one of the parliamentary bodies or officials referred to in point 1.4. In addition, the Commission may, on its part, transmit confidential information to Parliament in accordance with the provisions of this annex.
