    Other financial info

    The estimated cost above represents about a third of the fully loaded in-house costs of our EMEA Government Relations and Regulatory Affairs teams (located in Mechelen and Vilvoorde (Belgium)).
    This represents the costs associated with direct lobbying including participation in direct lobbying activities of the relevant trade associations.
    Other costs arise from information gathering and policy monitoring, the interpretation of that information, its internal dissemination, internal communication and discussions of business interests in relation to policy changes.
    Note that this amount does not cover our expenditure on the trade association memberships outlined above.
    These memberships provide us with a variety of EU policy support activities. We expect these trade associations to register themselves how much of their budgets are devoted to direct lobbying.
    We employ one consultancy, Acumen, on a retainer basis to assist us with intelligence gathering and ad hoc representation on a number of files. Its costs are included in the amount above. We also use Dario Ruivo Lda for interest representation services. Costs are included in the amount above.
