To be sent before
the 15 working-day time limit expires
Brussels, 3 September 2017
Your application for access to documents – Ref GestDem No 2017/4201
We refer to your e-mail dated 14/07/2017 in which you make a request for access to documents,
registered under the above mentioned reference number. We received this application together two
other applications (GestDem No 20117/4203 and GestDem No 2017/4205).
Your applications cover more than 75 documents and are currently being handled. However, we regret
that we will not be in a position to complete the handling of your application within the time limit of
15 working days.
An extended time limit is needed as your application concerns a large number of documents that will
have to be assessed individually. Part of the documents requested originate from third parties, which
have to be consulted.
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
We apologise for this delay and for any inconvenience this may cause.
