Maakt deel uit van de voorhangprocedure van de Tweede Kamer?

preliminary parliamentary scrutiny information (on X)
Explanation:
In addition, the health ministry announced in its Voorhangbrief keten-dbc’s en huisartsenbekostiging (Preliminary parliamentary scrutiny information on integrated health care schemes and general practice funding; VWS, 2009) that it was commissioning the NZa to produce a monitoring report by late 2011 on the effects of bundled payments.

As outlined above, there are laws and underlying regulations like Governmental Decrees that require a vote in Parliament. In addition, there are other Ministerial regulations, the preparation of which is delegated to a minister. These regulations are not submitted to Parliament for a vote. However, a so-called ‘preliminary scrutiny procedure’ is employed for Ministerial Decrees whereby Parliament is offered an additional opportunity for exercising control.
https://www.autoriteitnvs.nl/.../rapport-voor-de-7de-interna...

As described above, the Dutch CG Code is designated by way of an order in council (algemene maatregel van bestuur), as a code of conduct under section 2:391, paragraph five, of the Dutch Civil Code. The order in council refers explicitly to the 2008 Dutch CG Code. This means that every time the Dutch CG Code is amended, a new order in council needs to be adopted.

The procedure for adoption is as follows:
- preparation of a draft order in council by the Ministry of Justice;
- discussions of the draft order in the cabinet (ministerraad);
- submission of the draft to the Upper Chamber (Eerste Kamer) and the Lower Chamber (Tweede Kamer) (this is the so-called ‘preliminary scrutiny procedure’ (voorhangprocedure) during which both the Upper Chamber and the Lower Chamber have four weeks to propose amendments to the draft);
- submission of the draft to the Council of State (Raad van State) for advice; and
- publication of the order in council in the Bulletin of Acts and Decrees (Staatsblad)

@Ghislaine: 'preliminary scrutiny' and 'letter' seem absolutely fine to me in this context, but I'm not entirely sure about the 'proposal' part. Can't think of a better alternative right now, however :-).

Thank you!
Notes to answerer
Asker: Thank you Kitty. I have used 'Preliminary scrutiny proposal letter' for 'voorhangbrief'.


Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Michael Beijer: indeed, these letters seem to often involve/contain legislative proposals/wetsvoorstellen, but are not necessarily proposals themselves.
23 hrs
  -> Thanks, Michael. My thoughts exactly. As far as I can see, submission of the relevant draft order in council for parliamentary scrutiny is required by law in most - if not all - cases.
