- The Standing Committee has the autonomous screening right over the pertinent agenda rather than being given the right for screening, so the Committee can submit a bill over the ordinances or other issues. In this case, the chairman should submit the bill. The special committee does not particularly has any agenda, but is established through the vote in order to screen the issues deemed necessary. So, the screening of the special committee is limited to the agenda that has been sent forward. The bill can be submitted only in case the purpose of the committee is based on the bill.

Screening of the Committee
- The screening of the committee is made in the order of the explanation of the intention, report of the export members, alternative discussions, evaluations, discussions on pro-and-con opinions, and voting. The results are reported to the plenary council in the following four types.
- Reporting the submitted agenda in the original form
- Reporting the submitted amendment agenda in the revised form
- Reporting the alternative form by abrogating the submitted agenda
- Reporting the abrogation of the submitted agenda
The period of introducing a bill
- The Council cannot introduce a bill within three days after the bill is submitted. The period of introducing a bill is legalized in order to subject it to screening only after the minimum period for preparation and review.
- Members can make utterances without limit of the number or time over the same agenda.
- The principle is a series of questions and answers at the council.
A joint meeting
- A pertinent committee can consult with other committees and can exchange opinions in a joint meeting.
- A committee that receives a tax revenue and a budget bill should convene a joint meeting at the request of the special committee on budget and accounts.
- A joint meeting is not allowed to have a right for voting. Only members can exchange opinions and make questions and answers after receiving reports over the screening of the agenda.
- Voting will be made in the pertinent committee after a joint meeting is over.
- A joint meeting is convened when one agenda is linked to two or more committees, so the pertinent committee requests the meeting to the related committee.
A special committee
The Council can convene a special committee through a vote when it is deemed necessary for screening the particular agenda. A special committee includes the special committee on budget and accounts and the special committee on the qualification of the disciplinary action. A special committee exists until the agenda screened at the council is voted.
