Dear [email address],
According to Article 7.3 of Regulation 1049 on access to EU documents: In exceptional cases, for example in the event of an application relating to a very long document or to a very large number of documents, the time-limit provided for in paragraph 1 may be extended by 15 working days, provided that the applicant is notified in advance and that detailed reasons are given.
May we know in detail why this request demanded an extension of the time limit considering that all of the requested documents were recently reviewed and releaed to another individual?
