The Office of the European Ombudsman is the independent, impartial and easily accessible control mechanism of the administration of the EU’s institutions and bodies. FRA assists the work of the European Ombudsman on request, for example by providing contributions to public consultation launches and by participating in European Ombudsman initiatives. FRA is in constant contact with the Ombudsman to explore ways of increasing cooperation.
Art. 7 of FRA's founding regulation calls on the agency to cooperate with relevant Community bodies.
