Contribution to European Parliament's annual report on access to documents

In accordance with Article 17(1) of this Regulation: "Each institution shall publish annually a report for the preceding year including the number of cases in which the institution refused to grant access to documents, the reasons for such refusals and the number of sensitive documents not recorded in the register".

According to Rule 116(7) of Parliament's Rules of Procedure, the Parliament's committee responsible for legislation on transparency, that is to say the Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE), shall prepare the annual report referred to in Article 17(1) of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001, on the basis of information provided by the Bureau and drawn from other sources. The LIBE annual report shall then be submitted to the plenary.

Transparency Unit collaborates in drafting the proposal for the Bureau's contribution to the European Parliament's annual report on transparency, for the part covering the Public Access to documents.
