Complaint to EU lobby transparency register

Corporate Europe Observatory and LobbyControl

As the founders and coordinators of LobbyFacts, which holds and publishes an archive of EU lobby transparency data going back to 2012, Corporate Europe Observatory and LobbyControl have written to complain about hundreds of instances of implausible data in the current EU lobby transparency register. Such implausible data is a breach of the register’s Code of Conduct and means that the register is still some way off from providing fully reliable insights into the lobbying of the EU institutions. All data correct as of 18 September 2022.

The complaint can be found here.
