Dear ve_ercea.acctodoc (ERCEA),

no legal requirement for a postal address exists.

In 682/2014/JF, the Ombudsman office of the European Unions declared such attempts to prevent registration of access to documents request maladministration.

Please confirm that your request for a postal address was sent in error.

According to Article 7 (1) of Regulation 1049/2001, access to documents requests are to be handled promptly. Please confirm registration of this request.

Yours sincerely,

Mathias Schindler

Dear ve_ercea.acctodoc (ERCEA),

Thank you for your email. I am happy to assist you in providing more information. The company has been listed in the EU transparency register at https://ec.europa.eu/transparencyregiste... and you can find the names of some of their representatives in this list. Since a complete list of representatives is unavailable, I would like to emphasise that this request should not just cover the people listed in this entry.

The company was founded in 2004, the timeframe should not extend beyond this date.

Please indicate if more information is required.

Yours sincerely,

Mathias Schindler
