Tracing EU lobbying over time
LobbyFacts datacards for the European Chemical Industry Council (CEFIC), showing data as of 22 September 2012 and 9 August 2016.
Our unique archive of data from the EU transparency register, going back to February 2012, has now been integrated to the LobbyFacts database. Via the time line on top of each data card, you can access this historical information and retrace changes in the declarations of organisations in the register.
Among trade and business organisations in the EU transparency register with a Belgian office and with European Parliament passes, the Europan Chemical Industry Council currently declares the highest lobby spending: €10,220,000. Using the time line on CEFIC's data card you can see for example that in September 2012, CEFIC declared much lower lobbying costs (6 million euros) and held only 7 European Parliament accreditation passes against 26 currently.
