In the interests of transparency, the Commission asks organisations who wish to submit comments in the context of public consultations to provide the Commission and the public at large with information about whom and what they represent by registering in the Transparency Register and subscribing to its Code of Conduct.
If you are a Registered organisation, please indicate the name and address of your organisation and your Register ID number on the first page of your contribution.
If an organisation decides not to provide this information, it is the Commission's stated policy to list the contribution as part of the individual contributions. (Consultation Standards, see COM (2002) 704, and Communication on ETI Follow-up, see COM (2007) 127 of 21/03/2007).
If your organisation is not registered, you have the opportunity to Register now.
Received contributions will be published on the Internet. It is possible to request that a submission remains confidential. In this case, the contributor should explicitly indicate on the first page of their response that they do not want their contribution to be published. It is important to read the specific privacy statement attached to this consultation for information on how your personal data and contribution will be dealt with.
