While @EU_Commission@twitter.com has made improvements since our last inquiry, it still needs to:
- Forbid jobs temporarily, if they pose conflict of interest risks
- Publish decisions on staff members’ new jobs faster

The inquiry covered a sample of 100 decisions taken by @EU_Commission@twitter.com in 2019-2021, across 14 Directorates-General, all Commissioner cabinets, the Legal Service, and the Secretariat-General. Of these 100 decisions, the Commission prohibited only two activities.
