What is COSAC?
COSAC (fr. Conférence des organs spécialisés en affaires communautaires) unifies European Affairs Committees of national parliaments of EU Member States, as well as Members of the European Parliament.
Plenary COSAC meetings are held twice a year and each national Parliament is represented. Each plenary meeting is prepared at a preceding separate meeting of the EU Affairs Committee Chairpersons (usually at the beginning of the Presidential semester).
