Supervision of bill drafting

The Chancellor of Justice supervises the bill drafting process in all its stages. However, the Chancellor of Justice does not participate in the actual drafting of a bill. 

During the bill drafting process, the Chancellor of Justice

  • issues statements on drafted bills and performs a preliminary review of them at the request of the Ministry or on his own initiative
  • supervises compliance with feedback given in statements and inspections
  • reviews all legislative proposals submitted by the Government at the latest when they are presented to the government plenary session
  • issues expert statements at the request of parliamentary committees.
