Other (financial) information provided by the organisation:

method we used for our calculations:
for the purpose of its registration, Interel European Affairs has respected the Commission definition of lobbying, followed SEAP’s guidelines (, and adopted the following approach to its registration:

We determined the total turnover linked to direct lobbying the EU institutions calculating the following activities undertaken on behalf of our clients in 2009: contacting members or officials of the EU institutions; preparing, circulating and communicating information material or argumentation and position papers; organising events, meetings or promotional activities in support of an objective of interest representation; activities that are part of formal consultations on legislative proposals and other open consultations. We excluded from the calculation activities such as: compilation of policy audits, policy monitoring and intelligence gathering, media relations, internal meetings and reporting.

We have also encouraged all our clients to register, even those who have not undertaken any lobbying activities in the course of last year
