Dear Sir,

We refer to your e-mail dated 26/09/2018 in which you make a request for
access to documents, registered on 28/09/2018 under the above mentioned
reference number.

Your application is currently being handled. However, we will not be in a
position to complete the handling of your application within the time
limit of 15 working days, which expires today.

An extended time limit is needed due to the fact that in order to retrieve
the documents requested, large files have to be examined.

Therefore, we have to extend the time limit with 15 working days in
accordance with Article 7(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding
public access to documents. The new time limit expires on 13/11/2018.

We apologise for this delay and for any inconvenience this may cause.

Yours faithfully,

Access to Documents team

Dear Madam, Sir,
Please pass this on to the person who reviews confirmatory applications.

I am filing the following confirmatory application with regards to my access to documents request registered on 28/09/2018 under reference number GestDem 2018/5081.

DG CLIMA argued that all documents must be kept confidential to protect the decision-making process of the Commission, “as it would reveal preliminary views and policy options which are currently under consideration”.

I would like to refer to a previous access to documents request, registered on 08 January 2018 under Ref GestDem No 0148/2018. In response to that request, the Commission released several papers which provided preliminary views and policy options that were prepared in relation to the Commission Notice of 26.9.2017 on the application of EU food and consumer protection law to issues of Dual Quality of products – The specific case of food.

The fact that the Commission was then able to release those documents, revealing preliminary views and policy options, showed that there was no risk to the decision-making process.

I also would like to point to the greater public interest, which could override the exception cited by the Commission.

The non-paper in question has been published a week before the European Parliament voted on the Commission's proposal. The rapporteur in charge of steering the file through parliament has said the non-paper contained “misleading figures”. To set the record straight for the public, it would be imperative for the public to determine the preparatory work leading up to the non-paper. It is precisely because questions have been raised about the methodology of the non-paper that it is in the public interest – as well as in the Commission's interest – to be transparent about the documents I requested.

Sincerely,
Peter Teffer

Dear Mr Teffer,

 

I refer to your email of 15 November 2018, registered on 19 November 2018,
through which you submit a confirmatory application in accordance with
Article 7(2) of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding public access to
European Parliament, Council and Commission documents ('Regulation
1049/2001').

 

Your confirmatory application is currently being handled. Unfortunately,
we have not yet been able to gather all the elements we need to carry out
a full analysis of your request in order to take a final decision and,
therefore, we are not in a position to reply to your confirmatory request
within the prescribed time limit expiring 10 December 2018.

 

Consequently, we have to extend the deadline for handling it by another 15
working days in accordance with Article 8(2) of Regulation 1049/2001. The
new deadline expires on 10 January 2019.

 

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

 

Yours sincerely,
