Event Description

When: Wednesday, 26 September, 10.00

With: Green MEP Carl Schlyter

Green MEP Carl Schlyter will host a press conference to present a legal challenge he is taking against the European Commission due to lack of transparency and failure to release public documents. The case concerns a move by the French authorities to set up a register for nanomaterials to which the Commission has objected. The Commission is refusing to make the documents detailing its objection public. Carl Schlyter is challenging the Commission over this on the grounds that it is in conflict with EU legislation on transparency.
