Communication with DG AGRI on TTIP

Die Anfrage war erfolgreich.

Dear Trade,

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:

– on the topic of TTIP; all correspondence (including emails), the list of meetings with
detailed minutes and any other reports of such meetings between DG TRADE's officials (including the Commissioner and his Cabinet members) and representatives and/or officials of DG AGRI between january 2013 and december 2015.

Do not hesitate to get back to me should you need any further information which could facilitate your research. Thank you!

Yours faithfully,

Hans Wetzels

Generaldirektion Handel

Dear Mr Wetzels,

 

Thank you for your request for access to documents.

 

Unfortunately you have not indicated your postal address that is required
for registering and handling your request in line with the procedural
requirements. Please send us your full postal address at your earliest
convenience. Pending your reply, we reserve the right to refuse the
registration of your request. You may, of course, use directly the
electronic form for entering your request:

[1]http://ec.europa.eu/transparency/regdoc/...

 

In addition, your request as indicated below is very wide scope with a
topic "TTIP" and timeline running for three years. Your application
concerns a large number of document(s), which need to be identified and
assessed individually. Such a detailed analysis cannot be carried out
within the normal time limits set out in Article 7 of Regulation
1049/2001. Therefore, we kindly ask you to clarify the scope by e.g.
indicating a specific area/specific documents within the TTIP negotiations
that you are interested in and/or shortening the timeframe covered.

 

Thank you for your cooperation.

 

Best regards,

You have lodged your application via the AsktheEU.org website. Please note

Dear Mr Wetzels,

 

We refer to your request dated 09/08/2016 in which you seek  access to
documents, registered under the above mentioned reference number.

Your application is currently being handled. However, we were not in a
position to complete the handling of your application within the time
limit of 15 working days, which expires tomorrow 01/09/2016. An extended
time limit is needed as your application concerns a large number of
documents originating in different units; several files have to be
examined and related services in the Commission have to be consulted.
Therefore, we have extended the time limit with 15 working days in
accordance with Article 7(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding
public access to documents. The new time limit expires on 22/09/2016.

 

We apologise for this delay and for any inconvenience this may cause.

 

Best regards,

Dear Mr Wetzels,

 

We are aware that our deadline for a reply to you expired yesterday. We
were unfortunately not able to meet this deadline as we are still handling
your file. Documents are identified in three units in DG TRADE and their
individual assessment is taking some time. We also need to coordinate with
DG AGRI that is preparing their reply to you with an overlapping part to
our request. We will send you our reply as soon as it is ready and will
keep you posted on the developments.

 

We apologize for the delay and thank you for your patience.

 

Best regards,

Dear Trade,

This request is long overdue.

Please inform me as to when I can expect a reply with due information.

Thank you very much.

Dear Mr Wetzels,

Please accept our apologies for this regrettable delay.

We are currently working on the reply to your request. We have collected a number of documents from two of the units consulted. However we are experiencing some delay due to the fact that we are still waiting to receive documents from another unit. Provided that we receive the documents this week, we should be able to finalise a draft of the reply by the end of this week, or at the latest the beginning of the next.

It will however take a few days to get clearance from our hierarchy. Therefore we hope to be able to send out the reply in the week of 24 October.

We apologise again for this delay and for the inconvenience that it might have caused.

Thank you very much for your patience and understanding.

Kind regards,
DG TRADE

Dear Mr Wetzels,

We were just about to write you today to inform you about the current state of play of your request.

We finally received the missing documents from the last unit consulted on Thursday afternoon. With that additional contribution we have now collected all the documents concerned by your request in DG Trade. We are currently working on preparing a reply to your request. The draft reply should be ready by end of this week. It will then circulate for approval/signature by our hierarchy. You should therefore receive our reply in the week of 7 November.

We apologise for the further delay in replying to your request and we thank you very much for your understanding.

Best regards,
DG Trade ATD team
