Finland and Sweden criticise commission proposal on transparency rules

11th December 2008

On 11 December 2008, Finnish and Swedish ministers on Thursday criticised a proposal by the European Commission to revise the current legislation granting public access to EU documents. They argued that, on the basis of this new proposal, access to EU documents might be more restrictive.

"Our interpretation is that the commission proposes to exclude certain documents, such as documents related to the commission's own inspections," Finnish minister for EU affairs, Astrid Thors, said during a panel discussion at the country's mission to the EU in Brussels.

The Swedish minister for EU affairs, Cecilia Malmstrom, who drafted the current regulation from 2000 to 2001 when she was a MEP, stressed the importance of transparency in reducing corruption.

Committees in the European Parliament are expected to give their opinion on the commission proposal on 22 January. The vote by the plenary sitting is scheduled to take place in March.
