‘Conflict of interests’ is defined in many legal acts and codes of conduct at international and EU level. The regulations of EU agencies are not homogeneous on the degree of independence that agencies should maintain from the Institutions and Member States. This study reviews and assesses the existing rules and policies on conflicts of interests in EU agencies and examines if and how scrutiny can be improved, and if it is required to streamline and enhance the coherence of the rules in place.
