The Committee made of permanent representatives from the Member States to the European Union (COREPER, Comité des Représentants Permanents) is responsible for preparing the work of the Council and performing the tasks allotted to it by the EU Council: it carries out preliminary scrutiny of all the dossiers on the Council agenda apart from agricultural issues, for which Agriculture Council dossiers are prepared by the Special Committee on Agriculture (SCA).

COREPER is divided into two parts responsible for different EU legislation areas: COREPER II consists of permanent representatives from the EU member states while COREPER I consists of deputy permanent representatives.

COREPER II is responsible for organising the work of four Council configurations – the General Affairs Council (GAC); the Foreign Affairs Council (FAC); the Economic and Financial Affairs Council (ECOFIN), and the Justice and home affairs (JHA) Council, for preparation for the European Council, and for EU institutional issues.
