This page provides information on the main procedures and policies that the EEA follows to enhance public access to information about our activities.

Any EU citizen and any natural or legal person residing or having its registered office in the EU has a right of access to the documents held by the Agency, subject to the conditions laid down in Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding public access to European Parliament, Council and Commission documents (hereafter referred as “the Regulation”).

On 22 June 2004, the EEA Management Board adopted implementing rules for the application of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 as well as a decision whereby the Code of Good Administrative Behaviour, adopted by the resolution of the European Parliament on 6 September 2001, would apply by analogy to the EEA.

Most EEA documents are available directly in the register. If you cannot find what you are looking for, requests for access to documents can be submitted via:
