Bureau Veritas in charge of control tasks for Halloumi POD certification

Anas Ambri made this Informationsfreiheit request to Generaldirektion Landwirtschaft und ländliche Entwicklung

Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

We're waiting for Anas Ambri to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Agriculture and Rural Development,

On July 16 2015, a common understanding on a temporary solution for the POD certification of Halloumi/Hellim was reached. In it, Bureau Veritas was appointed as the body in charge of the control tasks provided for by Regulation 1151/2012 on quality schemes for agricultural products.

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

- copies of reports submitted by Bureau Veritas in its role as the body in charge of control tasks provided by the Regulation mentioned above, for the years 2021 and 2022
- copies of objections to Cyprus' application for PDO designation for Halloumi, including those sent by Finland and six natural or legal persons that reside or are based in Cyprus, submitted to the Commission and forwarded to Cypriot authorities
- copies of documents shared by German authorities to EU Agro Fraud Network, as part of the alert raised on July 5 2022 regarding Halloumi products that do not meet the required EU standards under its PDO.
- copy of the response received from Cypriot authorities regarding the alert raised on July 5 2022.
- notes and agendas of meetings conducted with representatives of Cypriot authorities, with representatives from Cypriot industry associations (including from the Turkish Cypriot community), or with Bureau Veritas, for the period from October 2020 until December 2022, on the topic of PDO certification of Halloumi.
- correspondence with representatives of Cypriot authorities, with representatives from Cypriot industry associations (including from the Turkish Cypriot community), or with Bureau Veritas, for the period from October 2020 until December 2022, on the topic of PDO certification of Halloumi.

I define “correspondence” as including (but not limited to) the following:
- Emails (and their attachments)
- Letters
- Memos
- Briefings
- Research documents
- Notes taken during telephone conversations

Yours faithfully,

Anas Ambri

AGRI-ACCESS-DOCUMENTS@ec.europa.eu,

Dear Sir or Madam,

We are writing to you concerning your request for access to documents sent
on 05/01/2023 and registered on 06/01/2023 under case number 2023/0125.

Since you have not indicated your postal address, we are not able to start
handling your request. The 15 working days to reply to your request will
start running only when you send us your postal address.

You can send your postal address by replying to this e-mail. If we do not
receive your reply we may close this case.

Please note that you can submit a request for access to Commission
documents via the portal [1]'Request a Commission document', which does
not require you to indicate your postal address.

Why do we need your personal postal address?

Since 1 April 2014, the submission of a postal address became a mandatory
feature when submitting an application for access to Commission documents
via an e-mail. We would like to explain why we need your postal address in
order to register and handle your application for access to documents when
submitted via e-mail:

• Firstly, to obtain legal certainty as regards the date you received
the European Commission reply to your application for public access to
documents. Article 297 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the
European Union (TFEU) states that 'decisions which specify to whom
they are addressed, shall be notified to those to whom they are
addressed and shall take effect upon such notification.' In line with
this provision, if the Commission does not grant full access to the
requested documents, it notifies the reply to the applicant via
registered mail with acknowledgement of receipt or via delivery
service. This requires an indication of a valid postal address by the
applicant;
• Secondly, to apply correctly the [2]Data Protection Regulation (EU)
2018/1725. Knowing whether the applicant is an EU resident (or not) is
necessary for deciding which conditions shall apply for the
transmissions of personal data to applicants for access to documents.
These conditions are not the same for recipients established in the
Union and for recipients in third countries. As the vast majority of
the documents requested contain personal data, the Commission cannot
ensure the correct application of the data protection rules in the
absence of a postal address;
• Thirdly, to apply correctly [3]Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001. Article
4(1)(b) of that Regulation refers to the protection of the privacy and
integrity of the individual and has to be applied in line with the
Data Protection Regulation;
• Fourthly, to protect the interest of other citizens and safeguard the
principle of good administration. The Commission has to treat all
citizens equally by ensuring that the legal framework for public
access to documents is respected. For example, it has to verify
whether Article 6(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 is being evaded
by introducing several requests under different identities. Indeed, in
its Ryanair judgment ([4]EU:T:2010:511), the General Court confirmed
that Article 6(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 cannot be evaded by
splitting an application into several, seemingly separate, parts. In
addition, the Commission has to make sure that the legal framework is
respected and the right of access to documents is not abused by making
requests under an invented identity.

The considerations above show that the request for and the consequent
processing of the applicant's postal address is not only appropriate, but
also strictly necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the
public interest within the meaning of Article 5(1)(a) of Data Protection
Regulation, namely providing a smooth and effective access to documents.

Yours faithfully,

Directorate-General for Agriculture and Rural Development - Access to
Documents
European Commission
