Commission proposes tougher lobbying rules - Proposal would require a transparency register for all three EU institution.


"The European Commission on Wednesday unveiled a new push to strengthen the EU’s transparency rules by creating a mandatory lobbying disclosure system for all three of its main institutions.

Under the proposal, the European Commission, Parliament and Council would have the same rules requiring lobbyists to publicly register their activities. The Commission currently allows its members and top staff to meet only with lobbyists who have publicly disclosed their activities on the EU Transparency Register. The European Parliament restricts access to its buildings to lobbyists who have registered."
