The nature and size of EFE is not always well known. For the sake of a better understanding of its activity and penetration in the information market, the agency has updated all its data available to the general public.
We are a public agency. It is accountable to the Spanish Parliament, the Court of Auditors in Spain, General Comptroller of State Administration (IGAE, in Spanish) and the European Commission in Brussels. EFE internally complies with a strict Code of Ethics and a protocol of action when obtaining and editing information, under collegiated decisions.
This internal quality control is also enforced by the Editorial Board, a professional representative body of EFE´s journalists, which regulates the work of the newsroom through rules approved on May 18, 2006.
This presentation includes the main figures over the last months.
