The CA EED is designed to serve the needs of national implementing bodies, as its aim is to contribute to the effective implementation of methodologies and legislation regarding the Directive.
Only with full confidence in the confidentiality of the CA EED will Member States be able to freely discuss options being considered by the national governments without fear that they will be leaked, causing undue pressure to the legislative process.
Discussions in the Plenary Meetings are fully confidential, unless otherwise expressly agreed by all the involved participants.
In signing the CA EED contract, all participating organisations have committed to guarantee this confidentiality agreement for all the participants they bring to the meetings, both their own staff and subcontracted experts.
Some information will be made publicly available via the CA EED website for widespread dissemination, either because of contractual obligations or after being agreed upon by the participants.
This will take the form of both national status reports, technical reports on specific topics related to the EED implementation and plenary meeting proceedings.
