Dear Sir,

We hereby acknowledge receipt of your application for access to documents,
which was registered on 5 February 2021 under reference number GESTDEM
2021/583.

In accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding public access to
European Parliament, Council and Commission documents, your application
will be handled within 15 working days.

The time limit will expire on 26 February 2021. In case this time limit
needs to be extended, you will be informed in due course.

You have lodged your application via a private third-party website, which
has no link with any institution of the European Union.
Therefore, the European Commission cannot be held accountable for any
technical issues or problems linked to the use of this system.

Please note that the private third party running the AsktheEU.org website
is responsible and accountable for the processing of your personal data

privacy policy.

We understand that the third party running the AsktheEU.org website
usually publishes the content of applicants’ correspondence with the
Commission on that website. This includes the personal data that you may
have communicated to the Commission (e.g. your private postal address).

Similarly, the third party publishes on that website any reply that the
Commission will send to the email address of the applicants generated by
the AsktheEU.org website.

If you do not wish that your correspondence with the Commission is
published on a private third-party website such as AsktheEU.org, you can
provide us with an alternative, private e-mail address for further
correspondence. In that case, the Commission will send all future
electronic correspondence addressed to you only to that private address,
and it will use only that private address to reply to your request. You
should still remain responsible to inform the private third-party website
about this change of how you wish to communicate with, and receive a reply
from, the Commission.

Please find attached document Ares(2021)1901342 from DOBRAN Cosmin (SG.E.4) dated 16/03/2021.

Veuillez trouver ci-joint le document Ares(2021)1901342 de DOBRAN Cosmin (SG.E.4) daté du 16/03/2021.

Dear Cosmin Dobran.

Thank you for the documents in relation to GESTDEM 2020/0583.

I have two follow-up questions:
- I can see there is no list of meetings attached. From the written documents, it seems no meetings were held between the President, her cabinet AND representatives of EFPIA. Is that the case? Can I conclude that no phone calls took place either?

- Also, as 'correspondance' includes text messages, can I conclude that no text messages were sent back and forth between the two sides?

Yours sincerely,

Kenneth Haar
