8 November 2022 RE: Access to minutes of meeting with ERT
Referring to Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 on public access to EU documents, I would herewith like to ask for access to the following:
- minutes of the meeting between President von der Leyen and the Chairman of the ERT (Jean-François van Boxmeer) held on 25 October in Berlin.
I would like to make clear I prefer you produce the documents on a rolling basis.
At no point should the Commission’s search for—or deliberations concerning—certain documents delay the production of others that the Commission has already retrieved and elected to produce.
To the extent possible, we prefer the documents in electronic format. Documents that cannot be sent in electronic format should be sent to Corporate Europe Observatory, Rue d’Edimbourg 26, 1050 Brussels.
Should my request be denied wholly or partially, please explain the denial or all deletions referring to specific exemptions in the regulation. Also I expect the partial release of documents, in case of partial exemption according to article 4.6.
I reserve the right to appeal.
Please confirm having received this application. I look forward to your reply within 15 business days, according to the regulation.
Thank you for your assistance.
Corporate Europe Observatory
