Project summary

Edit project overview to modify the project summary.


The Commission consists of eight members. Each Contracting State appoints four Commissioners, each of them with one substitute. Both members of the governments and of the local water management departments are represented. Thus, integration of the state guidelines as well as of the regional interests and concerns is ensured. The major share of the cooperation activities are supported by the local services, which thereby also take the main coordination load between the contracting parties. By proceeding that way the water management in the border region servers as successful example of subsidiarity and european cooperation in cross-border regions.

The Commission holds regular conferences once a year. Extraordinary meetings may be convened by the chairmen of the delegations by mutual agreement. The meetings are chaired by the Delegation of the organizing State. The negotiation languages are German and Slovenian. Decisions of the Commission require the approval of at least three members of each delegation. Decisions must not be executed if one government raises an objection. The governments of both countries are presented with the minutes of the meetings for approval. If neither of the two governments raises an objection against a decision taken by the Commission within three months, the decision shall be approved by the two governments.
