Pending the establishment of the sectoral committees of the 32nd Dáil, the Standing Order 112 Select Committee of Dáil Éireann was established. The transitional committee was formed as an interim measure to exercise Oireachtas powers under the Lisbon Treaty, in particular to ensure that EU draft legislative acts adhere to the "principle of subsidiarity" as defined under the Treaty. The committee ceased to exist when the Oireachtas sectoral committees were established on 16 June 2016.

The adoption of Dáil Standing Order 112 established the select committee.
