CAPCIT is a specialist body of the Parliament of Catalonia, though its work does not merely affect the 9 MPs who are among its members. The counseling given on scientific and technical issues and the gathering of information concerns all the bodies of the Parliament of Catalonia and their members. Accordingly, CAPCIT distributes the reports prepared by the various scientific and technical institutions among all parliamentary groups who are then required to forward them to the MPs. Likewise, depending on the topic, CAPCIT will send its reports directly to the respective competent parliamentary committees. In a case such as the one relating to the reports on genetic engineering, it was deemed pertinent to forward the reports to the association promoting the popular legislative initiative which collected signatures to call for genetically modified crops to be banned.
