Opinia na temat procedury „czerwonej kartki” oraz udziału Sejmu we współpracy parlamentów narodowych państw członkowskich Unii Europejskiej w ramach tej procedury
Opinion on the procedure for “red card” and on the participation by the Sejm in the cooperation of the national parliaments of EU Member States under this procedure
Languages of publication
The purpose of this opinion is to explain the legal basis of a “red card” procedure and the legal basis for the cooperation between the national parliaments of EU Member States, including the Sejm of the Republic of Poland, in relation to this procedure. The “red card” procedure involves scrutiny of the compatibility of EU draft legislative acts with the principle of subsidiarity and is operatively associated with the treatybased mechanism for submission by national parliaments of reasoned opinions on the non-compliance of draft legislation with the principle of subsidiarity. The possible concerted action of national parliaments on the “red card” procedure will have the same scope as that applied for “yellow card” and “orange card” procedures. According to the authors, decisions to be taken under “red card” procedure are not inconsistent with the Treaties, do not interfere with the procedures of “yellow card” and “orange card” and would not require changes to the Standing Orders of the Sejm. The legal basis (in both EU law and national law) for cooperation between national parliaments will be the same as the legal basis for their cooperation in the process of submitting reasoned opinions on the non- compliance of EU draft legislative acts with the principle of subsidiarity.
