Access to Public Information Act (APIA)
The Bulgarian Access to Public Information Act (APIA) was adopted in 2000.
On December 5, 2008 key amendments to the Bulgarian Access to Public Information Act were promulgated.
The amendments were introduced through two combined draft laws. The first draft law was introduced by Martin Dimitrov and a group of MPs from the opposition Union of Democratic Forces on May 28, 2008. The second draft was introduced on July 4, 2008 by the Chairperson of the Combating Corruption Committee and a group of MPs. The amendments reflect necessary changes which AIP has formulated and recommended in 2007 and 2008 in its annual reports Access to Information in Bulgaria.
Handbook "How to Get Access
