consent procedu

In certain legislative areas, the European Parliament is requested to give its consent, as a special legislative procedure under Article 289(2) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU). The consent procedure gives Parliament the right of veto. Parliament’s role is thus to approve or reject the legislative proposal without further amendments and the Council cannot overrule Parliament’s opinion. Consent is also required as a non-legislative procedure when the Council is adopting certain international agreements.
Term introduced by the Lisbon Treaty (1.12.2009).
