Support our work: become a Friend of Statewatch from as little as £1/€1 per month.

The Commission has finally published its report on The application in 2005 of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding public access to European Parliament, Council and Commission documents (pdf). The report is almost nine months late.

See: Statewatch lodges two complaints against the European Commission with the European Ombudsman (press release, full-text, pdf, 19 April 2007): - the Commission has failed to maintain a proper public register of documents with only a fraction of those produced listed; - the Commission failed to produce its annual report on access to documents for 2005 in the year 2006; - Statewatch says both are breaches of the Regulation and therefore cases of maladministration.

Our work is only possible with your support.
