Recent confirmation that they had access to the facilities housing the European Parliament was given to the European Deafblind Network (EDbN).
The accredited status will allow our representatives of Deafblindness greater networking opportunities to contact all the members of the European Parliament (MEP). The means for informing each member of the European institutions about the needs and demands of Deafblindness will be provided by this condition.
In addition to the ease of access and movement, this new condition will allow to present the specific care requirements of Deafblindness directly to the appropriate authorities. Besides, it grants the right to be informed about regulatory changes made in employment areas, social affairs, transport, tourism, culture and education.
Previously, EDbN had been admitted to the Joint Transparency Register, the identification system of organizations linked to European institutions. The European Commission and the Parliament established and oversee the Joint Transparency Register as a tool to accurately identify everyone engaging in activities that have an impact on UE decisions. It provides a single code of conduct that compels organizations to uphold moral standards. The accredited status is a satisfactory explanation since it will improve how Deafblind people with decision-making responsibilities are met by European institutions.
