Administrative Arrangements with Norway, Ukraine, Serbia, Switzerland

Ihre Anfrage war teilweise erfolgreich.

Dear European Defence Agency,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting the full text of the administrative arrangements for cooperation established between the EDA and:

-Norway (signed in March 2006)
-Ukraine (signed in December 2015)
-Serbia (signed in December 2013)
-Switzerland ("Framework for Cooperation" signed in March 2012)

I am currently a Masters student at the College of Europe and am writing my thesis on future models of EU/UK defence cooperation. In order to conduct my research, I need to obtain these documents in order to see exactly what are the arrangements for defence cooperation that the EU has with third countries.

Yours faithfully,

Marc Nikolov

Dear Madam, dear Sir,

Thank you. I will wait for your reply.
I cannot see the e-mail you've indicated, however. The following appears instead:
"Please note that all requests for access to documents must be sent to [EDA request email]. "

Could you please send me the e-mail I should write to ?

Yours sincerely,

Dear Madam, dear Sir,

Thank you for the prompt reply. I'm afraid the e-mail still does not appear...
I assume it has no relevance, since I have sent my request to the right address.

Looking forward to receiving the documents.

Best regards,

Dear Mr Nikolov,
Very strange to see that the email address ([EDA request email]) does not appear properly when you open the mail.
But, yes, it's not important since everything has been well received.
Best,
EDA

Dear Madam, dear Sir,

I was informed that the documents I requested are sensitive. As I soon need to begin writing my thesis, I would like to request, if possible, a summary of the documents - namely the following elements for each of the four agreements:

- Objectives/Principles of the relationship
- Scope of cooperation
- Provisions for consultation
- Provisions for information-sharing
- Provisions for financial contributions from third parties to EDA budget
- Provisions for dispute settlement
- Provisions for decision-making by third countries in EDA (if applicable)
- Provisions for participation by third countries in EDA projects

I would like also to maintain my original request for the full documents.

Kind regards,

Marc Nikolov

Dear Mr Nikolov,

We refer to your request dated 19 January 2018 for access to the four Administrative Arrangements concluded by the EDA with Norway (2006), Switzerland (2012), Serbia (2013) and Ukraine (2015), made pursuant to Regulation 1049/2001.
Unfortunately the internal consultation process has taken longer than anticipated and as a result we need to extend the deadline originally indicated of 08 February by another 15 working days.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and we will revert to you on your request by 22 February.

Kindest regards,
EDA
