Fighting corruption and fraud in Europe with Transparent Data

Fighting corruption and fraud in Europe with Transparent Data

  Launched by Transparent Data.

Transparent Data calls on all EU Member State citizens to help convince our European Union and it’s Member State governments to open up national company registers and make more company data public and accessible.

   Join some other 20 Europeans supporting this cause.

   Why should You support this cause?

We are strong believers in transparency in the corporate world. From our experience the biggest challenge in providing this transparency to people is twofold: a) The insufficient amount of company data made public in company registers and b) The technical and commercial obstacles in accessing the company registers across Europe.

There are countries like the UK, Bulgaria and Denmark which are leading by example and not only publicise more company data but also make it very easily accessible and completely free of charge. Unfortunately many other countries in our European Union publicise little company data, place it behind a paywall or introduce technical measures that drastically limit the access to the register (e.g. CAPTCHA). This needs to change. We strongly believe that all EU member states should publicise more company data and remove obstacles in accessing the registers (paywall or technical wall).

Unlike consumer data that we need to protect, company data should be very open and transparent. Without that transparency corruption, fraud and money laundering are so much easier. There is no excuse for governments in the European Union to deny their citizens transparency in the corporate world. Thus, Transparent Data calls on all EU Member State citizens to help convince our European Union and it’s Member State governments to make more company data public and accessible within our beautiful old continent. As advocates of data transparency, we hope you will join our Cause!
