Complaint to the European Investment Bank's Complaint Mechanism - Noncompliance of the European Investment Bank's Transparency Policy with EU and international law on access to information

In March 2015 the European Investment Bank (the Bank) published a new Transparency
Policy (TP), replacing the version that had existed since 2010. This complaint deals with the
non-compliance of the new TP with EU and international laws on access to information,
namely with the Aarhus Convention on access to information, public participation in decisionmaking and access to justice in environmental matters, Regulation 1367/20061 (the "Aarhus Regulation") and Regulation 1049/2001 (the "Regulation")2. Some information that should be publicly accessible is still withheld by the Bank and as a result of the new policy will continue to be or if available on request is not actively disseminated on the public register as
explained in section 1.2.2.
