EU Fisheries Control Regulation Article 113 Factsheet

The year is 2020. European Union Law is entirely freed from the authorship rule. Well, not entirely…

One small provision in the fisheries Control Regulation holds out against transparency. And life is not easy for decision makers, fishers and civil society organisations who work on the implementation of the Common Fisheries Policy.

ClientEarth has conducted an in-depth legal study on the compatibility of the authorship rule in the EU fisheries control regulation – the rule that prevents EU Institutions from publishing documents that have not been authored by them – with the EU’s transparency principles. The study resulted in a long legal briefing and a shorter fact sheet that conclude that the respective provisions in the control regulation violate transparency principles and fundamental rights.
