Subject: access to information request - Meetings between DG FISMA and lobbyists
From: [FOI #2149 email]
To: [email address]

Dear Sir/ Madam,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, we are requesting the following documents:

- a list of meetings of Directorate-General for Financial Stability, Financial Services and Capital Markets Union (DG FISMA)officials/representatives (excluding the European Commissioner, his Cabinet and the director-General) and interest representatives (including companies, onsultancies and law firms,trade/business/professional associations, think tanks and NGOs) between December 1st 2014 and today.

We would like the list to include the following information:
the date of the meeting,
which companies/organisations were present at the meeting,
names of the lobbyist(s) that were present,
the sector they represented (business, NGOs, academia, think tanks),
the name and job title of the European Commission officials that were present (e.g. head of unit,etc.),
and also the issues discussed, if possible in sufficient detail so as to identify the dossiers or policy initiatives covered.

We are requesting a list in order to avoid submitting a much broader request for minutes and other reports of meetings with interest representatives, which could require a large amount of effort from the Commission's side.
One of the ALTER-EU member organisations received a similar list of such meetings from DG MARKT in the summer of 014.[1]

There is clearly a high public interest in transparency over the Commission's interactions with outside interest groups.

Thank you in advance.

Yours sincerely,

Nicola Freeman, on behalf of the Alliance for Lobbying Transparency and Ethics Regulation (ALTER-EU) and Olivier Hoedeman, Corporate Europe Observatory (CEO)
