Barnier soll Expertengruppen notfalls auflösen NGO: Die EU-Kommission als Geisel der Finanzindustrie Die Kommission hat keine Chance, den Finanzsektor grundlegend zu reformieren - wenn sie sich weiterhin auf Berater aus der Finanzindustrie verlässt, so der Lobby-Experte Yiorgos Vassalos im Gespräch mit EurActiv.de.

Splits occur within European Commission, as European Parliament, Ombudsman and NGOs increase the pressure for implementing UN rules for contacts with tobacco industry lobbyists.

The European Commission has shelved a legal opinion confirming that genetically modified organisms (GMOs) produced through gene-editing and other new techniques fall under EU GMO law, following pressure from the US government. A series of internal Commission documents obtained under freedom of information rules reveal intense lobbying by US representatives for the EU to disregard its GMO rules, which require safety testing and labelling.
