Ziele und Aufgaben

Ziele und Aufgaben der Organisation: LobbyControl promotes transparency and a vivid democracy. We do research on lobbying, PR campaigns and think tanks and inform the public how they influence politics and media and where that becomes problematic. We also campaign for more transparency and a legal, institutional and societal framework that limits the improper influence of lobbyists on both politics and the public at large. LobbyControl was founded in 2005.

LobbyControl is committed to transparency about EU interest representation. LobbyControl believes that this register fails basic transparency standards and that it does not provide EU lobbying transparency. When registering, we have therefore chosen to give all relevant information that we consider necessary for lobbying transparency. A credible EU lobbying transparency register should include names of individual lobbyists and the issues that they try to influence, provide precise and comparable financial information on lobbying, and have effective sanctions to ensure the accuracy and completeness of the information disclosed. In an effort to arrive at a more objective way of calculating lobbying expenditures, we follow guidelines that result from consultations with public interest organisations, professionals working on lobby transparency as well as experts of US lobby disclosure legislation. Our registration is therefore providing a more comprehensive calculation of our expenses for activities that aim to influence the policy formulation and decision-making processes of the European institutions, and a list of those who, on behalf of LobbyControl, carry out such activities.

Our registration is based on the guidelines for transparent registration developed by the Civil Society Contact Group and ALTER-EU. Find the guidelines on http://www.act4europe.org/register or http://www.alter-eu.org”

Tätigkeiten

Wichtigste EU-Initiativen, die im Vorjahr durch Tätigkeiten im Rahmen des Transparenzregisters abgedeckt wurden :


LobbyControl campaigns for more transparency and a legal, institutional and societal framework that limits the improper influence of lobbyists on both politics and the public at large.

On the EU level we especially lobby for more lobby transparency – that means especially improving the weak EU transparency register to include names and meaningful financial information (narrow the ranges to 10.000 € and ensure that the information asked for from different types of interest representatives will be comparable and on the same level).

We also campaign for cooling-off periods before EU officials can work as lobbyists, for stricter rules against conflicts of interests (for example for the special advisors of the European Commission) and for an end of privileged access for certain special interests.

Concretely in 2013 we engaged in the following areas:

- Code of conduct for MEPs and especially the putting in place of the rules of procedure that go with the Code
- composition of the EFSA management board and the selection of experts of the scientific panels
- Composition of Expert Groups advising the European Commission
- Transparency Register
- Speaking out for more and stricter ethical and transparency rules as follow-up to the lobbyscandal around former Commissioner John Dalli, as well in the Code of Conduct for Commissioners as in the Code of Conduct for Lobbyists belonging to the Transparency Register
- Composition of the ethical committee of the European Commission (also as follow-up of the Dalli scandal)
- Demanding more transparency in trade negotiations (TTIP, CETA, TISA)

Weitere Angaben der Organisation zu den Finanzen im Sinne der Transparenz:

Following the guidelines of the EU Civil Society Contact Group and the Alliance for Lobbying Transparency and Ethics Regulation in the EU, LobbyControl has calculated that it spent an estimated 43.000 Euro in 2013 on activities carried out with the objective of influencing the policy formulation and decision-making processes of the European institutions.

Overall we believe that this register is seriously flawed and inadequate as a tool to provide EU lobbying transparency. This register should quickly be replaced by one that ensures real transparency. LobbyControl calls for mandatory registration of all lobbyists targeting EU institutions. A credible EU lobbying transparency register should include names of individual lobbyists and provide precise and comparable financial information on lobbying.
