Dear Mr Vranken,

We refer to your email application for public access to documents of 26
March 2024, registered on 27 March 2024 under the EASE reference number

Your application is currently being handled and the reply to it should be
finalised very soon.

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 on 22
April 2024, i.e. today.

An extended time limit is needed as in order to retrieve the large number
of requested documents, large files have to be examined.

Therefore, we have to extend the time limit by 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 15 May 2024.

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

Yours sincerely,
