European Ombudsman launches public consultation in relation to the transparency of the TTIP negotiations
On 29 July 2014, the European Ombudsman opened an own-initiative inquiry towards the European Commission concerning transparency and public participation in relation to the TTIP negotiations. The present public consultation concerns that inquiry. The outcome of the TTIP negotiations could have a significant impact on the lives of citizens. The aim of the Ombudsman’s inquiry is to help ensure that the public can follow the progress of these talks and contribute to shaping their outcome. It will be possible to take your comments into account if they are submitted by 31 October 2014. More information about how to contribute to the public consultations can be found on the website of the European Ombudsman.
