Transparency: Disclosure and Dissemination of Regulatory Data in the EU

Hannah Widemann, Darren Abrahams

Regulatory data submitted to EU institutions, bodies, offices and agencies is – depending on the nature of such information – subject to a myriad of different transparency regimes. These regimes determine rules on disclosure following access requests, the possibilities to object to such disclosure as well as the (scope of) active dissemination of such information.
