    Other financial info

    Following the new definition of the scope of the Transparency Register Bayer has reviewed its financial data about activities described in Article 7 and 8 of the Inter-Institutional Agreement (published in the Journal L277/11). On this basis and due to the changes of the definition, Bayer adjusted its overall amount spent on advocacy activities.

    In addition Bayer included the expenses of other business divisions located mostly in Germany, providing e.g. background research, position papers, political work within European associations and visits to Brussels related to activities falling under the scope of the register. Following the rules of the Transparency Register Bayer included all costs for consultancy contracts falling under the scope and definition of the register.

    The reported funding is calculated on the basis of the European Commission Financial Transparency System. The latest year available is 2015.

    Bayer is a member of various trade associations, independently reporting in the transparency register. Membership fees to these trade associations are used for a wide array of activities, including the independent representation of industry interests. Bayer has estimated that around 465820 € of its membership fees can be attributed to EU interest representation. It should be noted that these fees are being also reported in the budgets of the trade associations, thus effectively resulting in a double reporting. Due to its business structure, Bayer is mainly active in three industrial sectors, health, agriculture and chemicals, and thus is member in the relevant sectoral trade associations as listed above.
