EPC signs up to Transparency Register


14 January 2010

The European Policy Centre is pleased to announce that it has signed up to the European Commission's voluntary Register of interest representatives.

The EPC is the first major think tank on European Union affairs in Brussels to sign up to the register. Our decision to do so reflects our long-standing commitment to openness and transparency, demonstrated by the detailed information we already provide on our website about our financing and governance.

The European Commission’s definition of who should register states that it is for all entities engaged in “activities carried out with the objective of influencing the policy formulation and decision-making processes of the European institutions”.

The EPC is committed to making European integration work, by promoting discussion and innovative thinking on the key challenges facing the European Union and coming up with practical policy proposals to achieve this goal. We therefore decided to register even though the only interest we ‘represent’ is the interest of the EU as a whole.

You can consult the register on-line

By signing up to the register, the EPC and its staff commit themselves to comply with the Commission's Code of Conduct for interest representatives. Click here to consult the Code.
