Last month, at its 30th meeting, the Conference of German Commissioners for Freedom of Information presented its two resolutions on current topics concerning freedom of information and transparency. The first resolution is concerned with the question of transparency in negotiating the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). Here, the Conference asks the German government and European Union to provide more information about the negotiation process to the general public. In its second resolution, the Conference calls for more transparency of professional chambers. The Conference is of the opinion that professional chambers perform sovereign tasks and therefore underlie the Federal and Länder laws on access to information.
