98 EN Official Journal of the European Communities C 233/19

Opening to the public of documents and files from the historical archives of the Commission
which are covered by the obligation of professional or business secrecy

(98/C 233/07)

Under the 30-year rule (Article 1 of Commission Decision No 359/83/ECSC and of Council
Regulation (EEC, Euratom) No 354/83 of 1 February 1983 concerning the opening to the
public of the historical archives of the European Coal and Steel Community, the European
Economic Community and the European Atomic Energy CommunityØ(Î)), the Commisison is
required to open to the public, year by year, the files of the European Coal and Steel
Community (from 1983) and those of the European Economic Community and the European
Atomic Energy Community (from 1989) kept in its historical archives. Opening the files to the
public serves three purposes: to encourage research into the history of the Communities; to
foster public interest in progress towards European integration; and to throw more light on the
operation of the Community institutions.

The Commission considers that, pursuant to Article 4 of the Decision and of the Regulation,
there is, as a general rule, nothing to prevent a file from being opened to the public at the end
of the 30-year period even when there are documents in it that contain information which, at
the time, was covered by the obligation of professional or business secrecy.

However, the Decision of 30 November 1990Ø(Ï) requires the Commission to publish a notice
in the Official Journal to inform the persons or firms concerned or their successor(s) in title
that it intends to release to the public a document covered by the obligation of professional or
business secrecy.

Documents containing professional or business secrets in which reference is made to the firms
mentioned below will, provided 30 years have elapsed (30-year rules mentioned above) from
the date on which the documents were produced, be released to the public eight weeks after
publication of this notice unless a reasoned objection, based on the obligation of professional
or business secrecy, is submitted in writing to the Commission by that time. Objections
should be addressed to Mr Hofmann, Historical Archives, rue de la Loi/Wetstraat 200,
B-1049 Brussels, SDM 05/64 (Tel.: (32-2) 295Ø20Ø53; fax: (32-2) 296Ø10Ø95, e-mail:
