DG SANTE on IARC glyphosate report

Ihre Anfrage war teilweise erfolgreich.

Dear Health and Food Safety,

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:

-all correspondence (including emails), agendas, minutes of meetings and any other reports of such meetings where the findings of the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) regarding the potential carcinogenicity of glyphosate or glyphosate-containing plant protection products were discussed by officials of DG SANTE and/or third parties (between March 2015 and March 2016).

When 'officials' are mentioned in this request this includes the Commissioners and their Cabinet members.

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

Yours faithfully,

Vincent Harmsen

Dear Mr Harmsen,

 

As regards your request of access to documents GESTDEM No 2016/1035 and No
2016/1036, I would like to inform you that one of the third parties that
generated some of the documents that you requested asked us for the
identity of the petitioner.

 

Therefore, in accordance with Regulation (EC) 45/2001 on the protection of
personal data, I would like to ask you whether you have any objections to
our disclosing your identity.

I would appreciate a reply at your earliest convenience.

 

Kind regards,

Dear Health and Food Safety,

With this message I would like to reply to two emails, sent to me on April 13th and 14th.

As with regards to extention of the deadline by 20 working days, I would like to agree to the proposal, also taking into consideration that you will send me on a short term the documents already cleared for release.

Concerning the disclosure of my identity to third parties I would like to object.

Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 does not allow the disclosure of my identity in document requests to third parties. Article 6 (1), sentence 2 of the Regulation states that the applicant is not obliged to state reasons for the application, hence the identity of the applicant is irrelevant to the document request outside of the conditions of Article 2, as the request for identity disclosure by this third party is an attempt to circumvent Article 6 (1).

Article 4.4 gives the Commission the right to consult with a third party, but the third party has no right of veto over the disclosure of documents - that is for the Commission to decide according to the exceptions in Regulation 1049/2001.

Kind regards,
Vincent Harmsen
