who are the interest representatives trying to influence EU law-making, which interests
they represent and how much they spend on interest representation activities.
The Commission has led by example in this area by unilaterally applying the
conditionality principle to meetings of interest representatives with Commissioners, their
cabinets and Directors General since 2014. This decision has considerably reinforced the
current Transparency Register, as shown by the over 7,000 new entries in the Register
since the Commission has implemented this policy. In addition, the Commission
publishes information on these meetings on its website. However, this principle needs to
be extended to the Parliament and Council in order to ensure a level-playing field
between the three institutions and achieve a system of de facto
mandatory nature for
interest representatives. This is the main objective of the Commission proposal for a new
RECOMMENDATION TO THE COMMISSION
In this context, it is suggested that the GRI recommends to the Commission to endorse
the line set out in the present note. 6.
