The EIB Board of Directors approved the new Public Disclosure Policy on 28 March 2006. It replaces the Information Policy Statement and Rules on Public Access to Documents of 2002.

The Disclosure Policy sets out the Bank's principles and rules for disclosure of information. The policy is founded on a presumption of disclosure and includes the procedures for handling requests for information.

Comments and questions on the Bank's Disclosure Policy can be submitted through a dedicated mail box (
