La Comisión Europea propone hoy un Registro de Transparencia obligatorio que abarque a las tres instituciones de la UE, a saber, el Parlamento Europeo, el Consejo y la Comisión, cumpliendo así un compromiso clave de la Comisión Juncker en materia de transparencia.

La Comisión ya ha dado ejemplo de este compromiso al exigir que, para que los representantes de los grupos de interés puedan reunirse con sus responsables políticos. aquellos estén incluidos en un Registro de Transparencia de carácter público. Instamos hoy al Parlamento Europeo y al Consejo a que den el siguiente paso, haciendo obligatorio el registro de todos los representantes de los grupos de interés que intentan influir en la formulación de políticas en Bruselas.

La Comisión ha propuesto hoy un Acuerdo Interinstitucional (AI) que pondrá en marcha un sistema sólido destinado a garantizar la transparencia de las actividades de los grupos de interés, basándose en el actual Registro de Transparencia voluntario del Parlamento y la Comisión. La Comisión propone que las tres instituciones, incluido el Consejo, se sometan por primera vez a las mismas normas mínimas. Con arreglo a estas propuestas, las reuniones con los responsables políticos en las tres instituciones quedarían supeditadas a la previa inscripción en el Registro de Transparencia. La Comisión introdujo esta norma para sus propias interacciones con los representantes de los grupos de interés en noviembre de 2014, y hay ya alrededor de 4 000 nuevas entradas en el Registro existente.

La propuesta de hoy también clarifica las actividades y organismos cubiertos, refuerza el seguimiento y la aplicación efectiva del Código de Conducta del Registro de los grupos de interés, y simplificará y mejorará la calidad de los datos que deben introducirse, racionalizando los requisitos aplicables y aumentando el control de calidad. La Comisión propone aumentar los recursos disponibles para alcanzar este objetivo. Las personas inscritas en el Registro que no cumplan el Código de Conducta podrían enfrentarse a una suspensión temporal de sus interacciones con las instituciones o a la cancelación de su inscripción en el Registro.

Comunicación sobre la posición del Consejo sobre la adopción de un Reglamento por el que se establecen medidas relativas al acceso a una internet abierta y por el que se modifican la Directiva 2002/22/CE, relativa al servicio universal y los derechos de los usuarios en relación con las redes y los servicios de comunicaciones electrónicas, y el Reglamento 531/2012 relativo a la itinerancia en las redes públicas de comunicaciones móviles en la Unión (COM(2015) 489 final, 2.10.2015)

The Commission is also launching a new Cohesion Policy open data platform to support the reinforced results focus, to increase transparency and to promote debate on the performance of Cohesion Policy funding. Users can explore Report data with a range of interactive maps and charts and submit comments.
Through Cohesion Policy funding, the EU invests approximately €50 billion each year in economic development at the national and regional level (around 34% of the total EU budget). These investments are designed to help Member States and regions reach the Europe 2020 goals of smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.
In order to increase transparency and to promote debate on the performance of EU funding, this open data platform provides information about the investments made and the results obtained (as well as contextual data on the socio-economic situation in each EU country). The figures concerning the outputs of EU Cohesion Policy Operational Programmes are based on reports provided to the Commission by Member States. The data can be reused free of charge, provided that you acknowledge the source (see legal notice). Comments on the data presented here and suggestions of additional datasets are welcome. [+]
