Members

Membership

EISC has three official categories of membership: full members, associate members and observers. They are laid down in the Statutes under Art.2 of the Charter of the European Interparliamentary Space Conference (2011). Currently the following Parliaments are associated with EISC with the respective status.

1. Full Members

National parliaments of the member states of the European Union and/or of the European Space Agency that have created a parliamentary body dealing with space affairs are eligible for full membership.

 


The full members of the EISC decide upon full membership, associate membership and observer status, based on an official application of the national parliament concerned. This request is made to the Presidency of the EISC, communicated to the full members and approved by all full members present at the following Annual Conference. The EISC is chaired alternately by one of the full members. A presidency starts at 1 January and ends at 31 December of the same year. The current, previous and subsequent Presidencies form a trio. The previous and subsequent Presidencies provide consultation and support to the current presidency. The full members decide upon which national parliament will assume the presidency following the current trio. The resolutions of the EISC are adopted unanimously by the full members present


2. Associate Members

National parliaments of states not being full members of the European Union and/or the European Space Agency that have created a parliamentary body dealing with space affairs are eligible for associate membership.

Associate members are generally entitled to attend and speak in sessions. Associate members present at the Conference are invited to adhere to these resolutions, but cannot vote on the final text.

3. Observers

National parliaments of the member states of the European Union and/or of the European Space Agency that have not created a parliamentary body dealing with space affairs are eligible to become observers. Observers are entitled to attend sessions. Observers present at the Conference are invited to adhere to these resolutions, but cannot vote on the final text.

4. Guests

Guests can be invited from European institutions, other Parliaments as well as public and private stakeholders in the space sector.
