Welcome to the EDPS’ Public Register!
With this public register, you can now access a variety of the EDPS’ documents in an electronic format.
The EDPS, like all other EU institutions, bodies, offices and agencies (EUIs), is obliged under Article 15 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) to be transparent and open in the way it works.
As such, the EDPS’ Opinions, Recommendations, Decisions and other documents are made accessible on a public register. This transparency principle fosters good governance and offers the possibility for the public to be informed about and engage with the EDPS’ day-to-day work.
Who can access the public register?
Any citizen or resident of an EU Member State has the right to access documents of the EDPS according to Article 15 of the TFEU.
Public access to the EUIs’ documents, including the EDPS’ documents, is governed by Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001, which lays down the conditions and limits related to the public access of documents.
What to do if the document you are looking for is not on the EDPS’ public register?
If you are unable to find a particular document on the EDPS’ public register, please contact us at the following email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
Requesting access to the EDPS’ documents that are not on its public register is free of charge. In addition, no justification is necessary when submitting your request to access EDPS documents.
Upon receiving your request, the EDPS, within the time limits set out in Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001, will either provide you with the document(s) in question or will send you a detailed explanation as to why access cannot be granted.
If your request to access an EDPS document is granted, this same document will be made available on this public register.
