V The Netherlands - 1991

4 - 5 November 1991

The 5th COSAC in The Hague on 11-12 November 1991 adopted the first Rules of Procedure. The new rules confirmed that meetings of COSAC should take place every six months during the second part of the Presidency of the Council, taking into consideration the schedules of the parliaments. The rules provided for the possibility of organising extraordinary meetings of COSAC if an absolute majority of the Presidents of the European Affairs Committees were in favour of it. The rules fixed the number of participants per Member State at six, leaving the composition of each delegation up to the Parliaments.
