Dear Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs,

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:

1) a list of all lobby meetings (including online meetings) held by DG GROW since January 2020, in which intra-EU investment protection (after the termination of EU member states' intra-EU investment treaties) has been discussed. The list should include: date, Commission attendees, the name of the organisation(s) attending, and a more precise topic if that exists;

2) minutes and other notes from these meetings;

3) all correspondence between DG GROW and lobby groups, in which intra-EU investment protection (after the termination of EU member states' intra-EU investment treaties) has been discussed (since January 2020).

I would appreciate if you could take the Commission’s code of good administrative behaviour into account when dealing with the first part of this request.

Yours faithfully,

Pia Eberhardt

Dear Madam,

Thank you for your e-mail of 7/4/2021. We hereby acknowledge receipt of your application for access to documents, which was registered on 13/04/2021 under reference number GESTDEM 2021/2264.

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 04/05/2021. 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 website is responsible and accountable for the processing of your personal data via that website, and not the Commission. For further information on your rights, please refer to the third party’s 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.

For information on how we process your personal data visit our page Privacy statement – access to documents.

Yours faithfully,
DG GROW Access to Documents Team
