Open for accreditation:

General information

This portal is used for media accreditation during European Councils and other high level events. Members of the press can register for events open for accreditation and/or request a 6 month-badge when available.

Media accreditation is granted exclusively to members of the press working for bona fide media organisations. In reviewing the requests, accreditation criteria for the EU inter-institutional press card are applied mutatis mutandis.

Access to the press facilities will be given exclusively to individuals who are accredited. Badges are strictly personal.

Terms of Use

Information submitted will be used by the General Secretariat of the Council of the European Union (GSC) for accreditation and sent to one or more National Security Authorities for security verification purposes.

Completing this on-line accreditation form implies acceptance of these conditions.

Registration process

When registering on our site, please be very careful when entering your details. Even simple errors (e.g. reversal of first name and family name) may result in a failed security check and hence a refusal for technical reasons to issue a badge for the summit. If renewing your accreditation, please ensure that your contact details and identity document references are still valid.


For questions on the accreditation process, please contact the Press Office of the General Secretariat of the Council (Tel. +32 (0)2 281 90 00; email press.centre@consilium.europa.eu )
