Ethics screening and assessments under the European Defence Fund

We're waiting for ENAAT to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Defence Industry and Space,

Article 7.1 of Regulation (EU)2021/697 establishing the European Defence Fund (EDF) states that “Actions carried out under the Fund shall comply with relevant Union, national and international law, including the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union. Moreover, those actions shall comply with ethical principles also reflected in relevant Union, national and international law.”
Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:
– all documents related to the reviewing of EDF projects’ compliance with Union, national and international law and ethical principles, for the 101 projects funded under EDF 2021 and EDF 2022
– all documents related to the procedures that determine the compliance of EDF projects with Union, national and international law and ethical principles, for the 101 projects funded under EDF 2021 and EDF 2022.

Yours faithfully,
ENAAT

Hello,

Please find attached a message concerning your request for access to
Commission documents registered under the above case number 2024/2784.

Please acknowledge the receipt of this message by return email.
Kind regards,

Dear Defence Industry and Space,

Please pass this on to the person who reviews confirmatory applications.

I am filing the following confirmatory application with regards to my access to documents request 'Ethics screening and assessments under the European Defence Fund'.

The European Defence Fund is about developing or enhancing weaponry, including disruptive technologies that could radically the way to conduct war.
There is therefore an overriding public interest in disclosing documents 2, 3 and 4 identified as relevant by DG DEFIS, in order to let interested civil society and the public at large know that the EU is developing this new weaponry in full respect of its obligations under international law.
This is all the more important that civil society organisations expert in the area, several MEPs and the European ombudsman herself expressed regular concerns about the lack of transparency on the ethical checks under the Defence Fund and its precursor programmes PADR and EDIDP, and about excessive reliance on self-assessments by the applicants.
Commissioner Breton made a commitment to MEPs to ensure the greatest possible transparency on this issue, but no concrete action has been taken to date other than self-congratulation.

Given the serious risk of these disruptive technologies having, among others, a disproportionate impact on civilians in the conduct of war, it is necessary to provide civil society with sufficient information and evidence demonstrating that these ethical controls are being carried out in line with international obligations, and to disclose documents 2, 3 and 4.

A full history of my request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.asktheeu.org/en/request/ethi...

Yours faithfully,
