Spanish Law 19/2013, of 9 December, on transparency, access to public information and good governance is intended to increase and reinforce transparency of the public activity as a mechanism to facilitate the control of public action.

The Spanish National Securities Market Commission, in the exercise of its functions and activities, addresses the transparency regime from two perspectives: 

  • The active advertising of relevant information to ensure the transparency of its public activity.

  • Citizens’ right of access to public information. This “right of access” section offers relevant information on how to request information from the Spanish National Securities Market Commission.
