Transparency in the Common Fisheries Policy

Transparency is a vital element of the compliance framework of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP). Transparency allows individuals and NGOs to monitor national and EU authorities and helps ensure that those authorities do not violate the law. This briefing examines how transparency should be applied in relation the CFP and the important role civil society can play in relation to access to information.

This briefing was updated in August 2015.
