Our. Ref.: A(2018)7711

 

 

Dear Ms Herbst,

 

 

This is a reply to your application A(2018)7711 concerning the actors that
have contributed to Directive 2011/36/EU on combating and preventing
trafficking in human beings and protecting its victims as well as the EU
Strategy towards the eradication of trafficking in human beings for the
period 2012-2016.

 

The several steps of the legislative procedure 2010/0065(COD) that lead to
the adoption of Directive 2011/36/EU, from the Commission proposal to the
adoption of the directive, jointly by the European Parliament and the
Council of the European Union, are set out on the Parliament webpage under
the following link:

[1]http://www.oeil.ep.parl.union.eu/oeil/po...

 

This webpage also gives an extensive overview of the institutional
contributors (The European Parliament committee involved, the EP
rapporteur, the national Parliaments, etc) to this piece of legislation,
as well as access to their contributions. 

 

The Commission proposal, which can be viewed as the first step of the
legislative procedure, was itself the result of extensive consultations
with interested parties, as detailed by point 2) of the Explanatory
Memorandum of the directive proposal:

[2]http://www.europarl.europa.eu/registre/d...

For access to specific documents of the Commission, we would refer you to
the webpage of the Commission:
[3]https://ec.europa.eu/info/about-european...

 

The Commission proposal was then submitted to the European Parliament and
the Council of the European Union for it to be assessed and processed
following the ordinary legislative procedure. For more information on the
legislative procedure or interinstitutional legislative negotiations, see
for example the following link:
[4]http://www.europarl.europa.eu/ordinary-l....

 

For access to other specific documents of the Council, we would refer you
to the webpage of the Council:

[5]http://www.consilium.europa.eu/en/meetin...

 

As far as contributions from organizations, NGOs, politcal foundations,
individuals, etc are concerned, the European Parliament and the Commission
jointly manage a Transparency Register, with which interest
representatives (lobbyists) may register. Many of the registered interest
representatives stated the matters they are interested in. Those who have
stated an interest in immigration issues (and who might have published
position papers or lobbied Members of the European Parliament on the
legislative procedure 2010/0065(COD)) can found under this link:

[6]http://ec.europa.eu/transparencyregister...

 

However, the Register does not provide for the mandatory registration of
all interests representatives and natural persons who may contact Members
of the Parliament. Interest representatives and natural persons are not
required to register all their contacts with MEPs either.  Neither are
they required to state the nature of the contact they have entertained
with MEPs (whether they have met them in person, discussed a specific
topic, sent a letter, participate in a conference, etc).

 

Position papers on prevention of trafficking in humans may have been sent
to Members of the Parliament. However, in principle, Member’s documents
are not Parliament documents, and Parliament would not be in a position to
access and identify such documents and much less to disclose them.

 

There is indeed an organic separation between the public mandataries and
the European Parliament itself. According to Rule 116(2) of the Rules of
Procedures, for the purpose of access to documents, the term 'Parliament
documents' means any content within the meaning of Article 3(a) of
Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 which has been drawn up or received by
officers of Parliament within the meaning of Title I, Chapter 2, of these
Rules, by Parliament's governing bodies, committees or antiparliamentary
delegations, or by Parliament's Secretariat. In accordance with Article 4
of the Statute for Members of the European Parliament, documents drawn up
or received by the elected representatives or political groups are
Parliament documents for the purposes of access to documents only if they
are tabled in accordance with the Rules of Procedure.

 

Nevertheless, interactions between interest representatives and the
European Parliament are recorded in the event they take place within the
framework of the institution's parliamentary work. In this respect, a
search on the EP Public Register of documents shows that the persons that
have attended official meetings of the European Parliament concerning or
touching upon the legislative procedure concerning the prevention of
trafficking in humans. 

 

- see an example under the following link: 

[7]http://www.europarl.europa.eu/RegistreWe...

 

We hope this information and documents are useful to you. On the basis of
the above, Parliament considers your application as handled and closes the
file. However, should you identify other specific documents you would be
interested in getting access to, please do not hesitate to come back to
us.

 

Kind regards,
