EU documents: more transparency needed

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 14 aprile 2011

The regulation on access to EU documents needs to be thoroughly revised and a change of mentality is needed, argued MEPs on Wednesday at a hearing organised by the Civil Liberties Committee. The hearing, titled “The right of access to EU documents: implementation and future of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001”, gave the MEPs steering Parliament’s work in this field the opportunity to discuss with outside experts the state of play regarding the current regulation and the revision which is under way. “It was clear today that there is a need now more than ever for more transparency in the EU institutions, and we parliamentarians will drive the new regulation in this direction. This is a law that gives you, the citizens of the EU, the right to access any document held, received or produced by the EU institutions, bodies and agencies. Its main ambition is to make the EU lawmakers and all our institutions more accountable to the citizens, and together with my colleagues from the European Parliament I will do all I can for this to be achieved”, said Michael Cashman (S&D, UK), Civil Liberties Committee rapporteur on the revision of regulation 1049/2001 regarding public access to documents.
