Dear Joint Research Centre,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

For the period between 1 January 2011 to 31 december 2016:

- a list of all lobby and industry meetings and/or calls held by the Directorate-General for Joint Research Centre, including any Cabinet Members and/or officials, during which “PFAS” and/or “C604” and/or “PFOA” and/or “GenX” were discussed.
The list should include: date, individuals attending and organisational affiliation, as well as the issues discussed;

- all minutes and other reports of these meetings and/or calls;

- all documents prepared for the purpose of the meetings issued both in preparation and after the meetings took place.
- all correspondence, including attachments (i.e. any emails, mail correspondence or telephone call notes) between the Directorate-General for Joint Research Centre, including any Cabinet Members and/or officials, and any lobby group and/or industry representative discussing “PFAS” and/or “C6O4” and/or “PFOA” and/or “GenX”

To the extent possible, I prefer the documents in electronic format.
Should my request be denied wholly or partially, I kindly request to explain the denial or all redactions referring to specific exemptions in the regulation. Also I would expect the partial release of documents, in case of partial exemption according to article 4.6.

Please confirm receipt of this application. I look forward to receiving your reply within 15 business days, as established by the regulation.

Yours faithfully,

Matias Gadaleta

Dear Sir,

 

We refer to your e-mail of  19 August 2021 in which you make a request for
access to documents, registered on 20 August 2021 under the above
mentioned reference number.

 

Your application is currently being handled. 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 10 September 2021.

 

An extended time limit is needed as (part of) the documents requested
originate from third parties, who have been consulted on the possibility
to disclose the documents.

 

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 1 October 2021.

 

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

 

Yours faithfully,
