Dear Secretariat General of the European Commission,

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 documentation (including but not limited to all email correspondence, attendance lists, agendas, background papers, transcripts, recordings and minutes/notes) relating to the meeting listed below:

1. Between FertilizersEurope and Kurt Vandenberghe (Cabinet member of President Ursula von der Leyen ) on 25/06/2021 to discuss the CBAM and conditions for the fertilizer sector.

I would prefer you to produce the documents on a rolling basis, rather than waiting until the full response is ready, and I would be pleased to receive an initial list of all documents as soon as possible.

Yours faithfully,

Alex Cranston
1 Long Ln, London
