Decision in case 1282/2018/EWM on the European Commission’s refusal to grant public access to a message from a European Commission official to an official of the United Kingdom concerning the draft Recommendation of the Council of Europe on the roles and responsibilities of internet intermediaries

Mercoledì | 19 settembre 2018

The case concerned the European Commission’s handling of a request for access to documents related to the draft Recommendation of the Council of Europe on the roles and responsibilities of internet intermediaries, such as hosts of web-based services, search engines and sales platforms.

The Commission gave full access to some documents, gave partial access to other documents and refused to grant access to certain other documents. In particular, the Commission refused to grant access to a message from a European Commission official to the WeProtect Global Alliance secretariat at the United Kingdom Home Office. The Commission argued that disclosure would undermine the protection of the public interest as regards international relations and public security. The complainant contested the Commission’s decision, partly on the basis of the presence of private companies on the Board of WeProtect. He argued that under such circumstances, the message could not be considered to undermine international relations.

The Ombudsman found no maladministration by the Commission in refusing to give access to this particular document and closed the case.

Decision in case 811/2017/EA on the transparency of “advisory bodies” that influence the development of EU policy

Mercoledì | 19 settembre 2018

This case is about the transparency of “advisory bodies” that influence the development of EU policy.

The ‘Group of Personalities’ was set up by the Commissioner for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs to help to advise on how the EU can support research related to the Common Security and Defence Policy. An NGO, the European Network Against Arms Trade, complained to the Ombudsman about the lack of transparency regarding the Group of Personalities. It noted, in particular, that the Group did not appear on the European Commission’s Register of expert groups and other similar entities.

The Ombudsman agrees that, in view of its composition - it included political members such as members of the European Parliament, national Parliaments and the Commission - it would be difficult for the Group of Personalities to be considered as an ‘expert group’. However, the Ombudsman notes that the Group of Personalities provided advice in relation to the preparation of a policy initiative, in the same way as an expert group, and that an appropriate level of transparency should have applied to its work. The Ombudsman suggests that an appropriate level of transparency, in relation to this Group, be ensured retrospectively by the Commission. She also suggests that, for the future, the Commission can strengthen public trust in its work by ensuring that appropriate transparency measures are applied to any new version of the Group of Personalities and similar advisory groups that influence important policy areas. Information to be provided about such groups should include, in particular, membership, agendas and minutes of meetings, as well as the criteria for the selection of their non-political members and the measures taken to ensure a balance of relevant stakeholders.

Decision in case 25/2018/CEC on how the European Commission handled correspondence about EU rules concerning breast implants

Mercoledì | 19 settembre 2018

The case concerned how the European Commission dealt with correspondence concerning EU rules on breast implants. The complainant felt the Commission had failed (a) to reply to concerns it raised about the Scientific Committee on Health and Environment and Emerging Risks (which provides scientific advice to the Commission) and its advice concerning breast implants. The complainant also believed that the Commission, in considering the risks related to breast implants, had failed (b) to take into account information demonstrating a causal link between breast implants and anaplastic large-cell lymphoma. The complainant wanted the Commission (c) to request that EU Member States (temporarily) place a moratorium on textured breast implants.

The Ombudsman inquired into the issue and found that the Commission had replied to the complainant. Regarding aspects (b) and (c) of the complaint, the Ombudsman found that there was no maladministration by the Commission.

The Ombudsman therefore closed the inquiry.

Decision in case 540/2017/AMF on the European Commission’s refusal to grant full access to a document related to an infringement procedure against Spain about a Spanish tax on energy production

Martedì | 18 settembre 2018

The case concerned the refusal by the European Commission to grant full public access to a note related to an infringement complaint about a Spanish tax on energy production. The Commission argued that full disclosure of the note would undermine the protection of ongoing court proceedings (in the national courts) and the privacy and integrity of individuals.

The Ombudsman inquired into the issue and found that the Commission´s decision to grant only partial access to the note was justified.

The Ombudsman therefore closed the inquiry with a finding of no maladministration.
