Alleged failure to properly implement Article 5.3 of the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control


The Commission failed properly to implement Article 5.(3) of the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (the "WHO Convention) and the accompanying guidelines. 


The Commission should:

a) undertake a thorough assessment of how to implement the WHO Convention rules across all of its departments;

b) publish online lists of all meetings with tobacco industry representatives and minutes of such meetings;

c) implement a code of conduct on relation with the tobacco industry amending where necessary the relevant provisions of the Code of Conduct for Commissioners and the Staff Regulations;

d) ensure registration and disclosure of the identity and activities of tobacco industry lobbyists via the EU's Transparency Register.
