Member of the European Parliament, 1999–present
Since 1999, Niebler has been a Member of the European Parliament, where she has since served as the CDU/CSU Group parliamentary business manager in the EPP-ED Group at the European Parliament, and as member of the CDU/CSU Group and EPP-ED Group Executive.
Niebler sits on the European Parliament's Committee on Industry, Research and Energy, and its Committee on Women's Rights and Gender Equality. She is a substitute for the Committee on the Internal Market and Consumer Protection and a member of the Delegation for relations with the Gulf States, including Yemen.
Between 2007 and 2009, Niebler served as chairwoman of the Committee on Industry, Research and Energy; she was later replaced by Herbert Reul. In 2006, she was the author of the industry committee’s report on the seventh Framework Program for Research and Technological Development, totalling €50.5 billion. From 2010 to 2012, she led the European Parliament’s negotiations on overhauling European Union roaming regulations.
In early 2014, the CSU chose Niebler to be the party list’s number 2 for the 2014 European elections, following Markus Ferber. She later replaced Ferber as leader of the CSU MEPs after the party’s poor showing in the elections. In 2015, Bavaria's Minister President Horst Seehofer nominated Niebler as one of his deputies in the office of CSU chairman, making her part of the party’s leadership.
