Law 19/2013 of 9 December 2013 on transparency, access to public information and good governance (Transparency Law, available only in Spanish) aims to extend and reinforce the transparency of public activity as a way to facilitate control of public actions.
In the exercise of its functions and pursuit of its activities, the Banco de España approaches the transparency regime from two standpoints:
- 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.
