Public consultation on EU access to documents

Dear all,

I have come across a public consultation from the EU Commission about access to public documents (EU FOI) which might be of interest:

Public consultation on a new online platform for public access to documents held by the Commission

Deadline: 21 September 2018
The Commission is preparing a new online platform for requests by the public to access documents held by the Commission (in line with Regulation 1049/2001 - the EU’s FOI law).

This consultation is seeking opinions on the design and features of the new platform.

The main objective of the platform is to develop a more efficient and user-friendly way to handle requests for access to documents. This should facilitate cross-border interaction between the Commission and the public, making it easier for the citizens to identify and access documents they are interested in.
