Group of Specialists on Access to Official Information (DH-S-AC)
The Group of Specialists on Access to Official Information (DH-S-AC) was given specific terms of reference in 1997 to elaborate a legal instrument incorporating basic standards on the right for the public to have access to information in the hands of the public authorities. This work resulted notably in adoption by the Committee of Ministers of Recommendation Rec (2002)2 on Access to Official Documents and the 2009 Council of Europe Convention on Access to Official Documents.
