InfoCons launches the first international initiative for unification of access to information

InfoCons, part of Consumers International, has launched the European Global Mobility Project  on transparent access to emergency and useful numbers for citizens in each country. This is the first international initiative for unifying the access to information in the context of global digitization.

In the context of global citizen’s mobility, it is imperative to have correct, direct, rapid, transparent and easy access to information on the institutions that are put at the service of citizens, in order to support them in case of emergency.

In accordance with the Charter of the United Nations and Civil Rights, as well as International and European Regulations on transparent access to information and complaints, the International Consumer Information Program provides citizens around the world with access to accurate, direct, prompt and transparent information.

The International Information Program provides all citizens with unrestricted access to contact state institutions in order to receive information or solve their problems. The program is intended for the citizens of your own country, but also for the citizens that are in transit either for working, visiting or other activities.

By scanning QR code, citizens have the opportunity to access emergency numbers in a country directly from their mobile phone without having to search on various search engines, thus ensuring easy and quick information for emergencies and more.

In accordance with the objectives of the United Nations regarding transparency and access to information, institutions, organizations, and companies are encouraged to promote transparent access to information and intelligence. One way to achieve this is by displaying the Single Information Plate in two formats. To access this plate, individuals can visit the official website and navigate to the section dedicated to each country. The plate provides direct access to emergency numbers specific to each country. It is recommended to display the plaque in visible locations within the public access areas of institutions, organizations, and companies, such as airports, railway stations, public institutions, town halls, educational institutions, universities, hotels, restaurants, taxi companies, shops, supermarkets, pharmacies, hospitals, and other relevant establishments.
