Therefore, ENISA has to strike a delicate balance between getting the right expertise to guarantee high quality decision making and at the same time strictly avoiding conflicting interests influencing (or being seen to influence) the decision-making process.
A conflict of interest arises if the impartiality and objectivity of a decision, opinion or recommendation of the Agency, including its bodies, is or might in the public perception, be compromised by an interest held by, or entrusted to, an individual working for the Agency.
ENISA's Management Board, Permanent Stakeholder's Group, Executive Director and officials seconded by Member States on a temporary basis, need to make a declaration of commitments and a declaration of any interests which might be considered to be prejudicial to their independence. These declarations are made in writing.
- Declarations of interest and of commitment of the members of the Management Board
- Declarations of interest of members of the Permanent Stakeholders Group
