On 28 September 2016, the European Commission published its proposal to revise the EU Transparency Register to make the register mandatory and extend it to the Council. The proposal will be the basis for the upcoming negotiations on a new Inter-institutional Agreement (IIA) for the European Parliament, Commission and Council.
In preparation of the upcoming talks, Transparency International EU (TI EU) has set out its priorities to create a robust and credible register addressing the decreasing trust in the EU institutions and the European project itself.
