Attempts to block citizens' requests via AsktheEU.org

Recently, the European Commission has been attempting to block requests for access to documents sent via AsktheEU.org.

The new policy, which was adopted on 1 April 2014, is to refuse to process requests until citizens provide their postal address. Click here to see a statement by Access Info denouncing this policy.

Access Info has prepared a draft appeal or confirmatory application which you can use to respond if this happens to you. We are also happy to receive your correspondence at our office in Madrid, which we can forward to you and upload to AsktheEU.org.

Access Info will complain to the European Ombudsman about this. Please do not hesitate to send us a link to your request so we can include it in the complaint: team@asktheeu.org

If you prefer to use your own postal address, please contact us directly so we can delete it from the website as soon as you have sent it. You can also send it to the EU institutions offline and then simply forward us the correspondence later!
