Dear Court of Justice of the European Union,
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 related to EDPS Case 2021-0255:
- A copy of the Transfer Impact Assessment(s) conducted by the CJEU on its use of Cisco Webex and related services, or, in the alternative,
- Any preliminary assessment of the relevant third-country surveillance laws and practices, including in the United States, India, Mexico, Jordan, Costa Rica, Columbia, and other third countries where Cisco Group entities, Cisco affiliated companies and other sub-contractors (e.g. AWS, Salesforce) may be located.
Dear Mr. Enrique Broenstein,
Thank you for your access to documents request.
We regret to inform you that your request is inadmissible, as it does not meet formal requirements.
According to Article 4 of the decision of 26 November 2019 concerning public access to documents held by the Court of Justice of the European Union in the exercise of its administrative functions (2020/C 45/02), applications for access to a document of the Court of Justice of the European Union must be made in one of the official languages of the European Union on a form which is available on the internet site of the Court of Justice of the European Union, which can be found on the internet site of the Court: https://curia.europa.eu/jcms/jcms/P_1848....
This form shall be sent preferably electronically in accordance with the instructions set out on the abovementioned internet site or, in exceptional circumstances, by post or by fax.
Moreover, we would like to pay your attention to the fact that Regulation 1049/2001 is not applicable to the Court of Justice of the European Union. Pursuant to Article 15(3) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, the Court of Justice of the European Union has, by its aforementioned decision put in place its own rules concerning public access to the documents held by it in the exercise of its administrative functions.
You can find all the relevant information, necessary to submit an access to documents request, on the website of the Court of Justice of the European Union at the following link: https://curia.europa.eu/jcms/jcms/P_1848....
