The European Transparency Initiative aims to increase openness and accessibility of EU institutions, raise awareness over the use of the EU budget and make the EU institutions more accountable to the public. As part of this initiative the European Commission has launched consultations on the Regulation regarding public access to European Parliament, Council and Commission documents. These consultations were launched with a view to granting citizens better and easier access to documents of the Community institutions and agencies. The Commission has published a Green Paper, which contains an analysis of the implementation of the Regulation and relevant case law and suggestions for improvement, and opened a dedicated website. The consultations are open to the public at large and will last until 15 July 2007.
