Under the provisions of the Joint Transparency Register launched on 23 June 2011, organisations and entities are required to accede to the Register prior to requesting access rights from the European Parliament.
An application for access rights should be submitted in conformity with the instructions elsewhere on this website.
Individuals may be granted access rights to the European Parliament for up to 12 months. An application to renew access rights can be submitted two months prior to the indicated expiry date.
Individuals with access rights may obtain a daily access card to enter the European Parliament from the reception desks at the Simone Veil Agora entrance to the Altiero Spinelli (ASP) building in Brussels (Luxembourg Station side), and the entrances to the Louise Weiss (LOW) and Winston Churchill (WIC) buildings in Strasbourg.
Access cards in Brussels will be available from 08h00-19h00 on days when parliamentary business is being conducted (Mon.-Thurs.) and in Strasbourg during plenary part-sessions from 12h30-20h00 (Mon.), 07h30-20h00 (Tues.-Wed.) and 07h30-18h00 (Thurs.).
An organisation may request access rights for a number of individuals of whom no more than four may enter Parliament in a single day.
