Interinstitutional Editorial Committee (CEiii)

The Inter-institutional Editorial Committee on the internet (CEiii) is a permanent structure to coordinate the development of the institutions’ websites and oversee the inter-institutional pages of EUROPA.



The CEiii facilitates the exchange of information, shares good practices and creates synergies between institutions and other EU bodies on digital communication. It deals with a variety of subjects, from editorial issues to technological development.

Each institution retains complete autonomy over its websites and other online channels, as well as takes decisions on digital strategy, operations and resources according to its internal rules and procedures.

The CEiii was organised in 2001 on the basis of recommendationspdfRestricted area: This link points to internal pages and may not work if you are browsing as an external user. from the Inter‑institutional Internet Task Force and works according to a mandatepdfRestricted area: This link points to internal pages and may not work if you are browsing as an external user..
