This complaint concerns the failure of the European Commission to adequately implement the 'revolving door' rules, in order to reduce the risk of conflicts of interest arising. The 'revolving door' is a recognised
phenomenon describing the movement of staff from public sector positions to lobby jobs in the private sector, or vice versa. This process contribues to the corporate capture of the EU.
The inadequate implementation of the rules by the Commission has occurred in a range of different cases which are detailed in the complaint.
