EXTENSION OF THE TIME LIMIT 
 
To be sent before the 15 working-day time limit expires 
 
Brussels, 3 September 2017 
 
 
Dear Sir, 
Subject: 
Your application for access to documents – Ref GestDem No 2017/4203 
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 20117/4201 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 
22/09/2017. 
We apologise for this delay and for any inconvenience this may cause.  
Yours faithfully,
