Law 19/2013 of 9 December 2013 on transparency, access to public information and good governance (Transparency LawOpens in new window, available only in Spanish) aims to extend and reinforce the transparency of public activity as a way to facilitate control of public actions.

  • Active disclosure of important information to ensure the transparency of its public activity. This information is grouped into the three sections envisaged in the Transparency Law: institutional and planning information, economic information and legally relevant information.
  • The public’s right of access to public information. In the right of access section information is provided on how to request information from the Banco de España.
