How to get access to documents and data in the EU

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

EU Regulation 1049/2001 regarding public access to documents is a powerful, yet underused tool to obtain documents from EU institutions – from its regulatory agencies such as the European Medicines Agency up to the Council. Come learn how to use it and get official documents you never dreamed existed. Staffan will talk about the importance of the Council working parties and point at the EU Ombudsman's initiatives to (try to) open them up. Stéphane will show how to have FOIfun with the EU Commission using examples from various investigations (Implant files, lobbying against the regulation of toxic chemicals and pesticides).
