access to documents

The right of public access to documents in the EU falls under the provisions of Regulation 1049/2001, through which members of the public may make a formal request for document access, provided what is sought does not fall under the exceptions detailed in Articles 4 and 9.

EMSA has a specific procedure in place for requesting access to documents under the Regulation, which is detailed below. Please note that this is the only procedure through which access to documents can be requested.

Requests for documents may be submitted:
