Interparliamentary EU Information Exchange (IPEX)

This is a platform for the mutual exchange of information between the national Parliaments and the European Parliament concerning issues related to the European Union, especially in light of the provisions of the Treaty of Lisbon i. This treaty introduced the possibility to draw a Yellow i or Orange i Card in response to Commission proposals inducing objections regarding subsidiarity i. The establishment of IPEX derives from a recommendation given by the Conference of Speakers of the Parliaments of the European Union in the year 2000.
