Press conference by Maroš Šefčovič, Vice-Président of the CE, on the launch of a joint transparency register for lobbyists and NGOs

Maroš Šefčovič, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Inter-Institutional Relations and Administration, gave a press conference on the launch of a joint transparency and public register for lobbyists and NGOs. This register, jointly created by the EC and the EP, provided more information than ever before on those who sought to influence European policy.
The new register replaced the one set up by the EC in 2008, which already contained more than 4000 organisations. These have been gradually transferred to the Joint Transparency Register over the 12 months following the launch.
It also extended its coverage well beyond traditional lobbyists to include law firms, NGOs, think tanks; any organisation or self-employed individual engaged in influencing EU policy making and implementation. This was a key step towards the EU's goal of a more participatory democracy.
