Dear Mr. Teffer,

 

We refer to your e-mail dated 29/08/2018 in which you make a request for
access to documents, registered on the same date under the abovementioned
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 19/09/2018.

 

An extended time limit is needed as the application concerns documents
held by different Commission services which must be consulted.
Furthermore, part of the documents requested originate from third parties 
which need 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 10/10/2018.

 

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

 

Yours faithfully,

 

Access to Documents Team

Dear Madam, Sir,

Please pass this on to the person who reviews confirmatory applications.

I am filing the following confirmatory application with regards to my access to documents request, registered on 29/08/2018 under reference number GestDem 2018/4613.

I would like to thank DG Connect for the documents which have been released. However, I would like to ask the secretariat-general for a fresh review of my request.

DG Connect has refused access to three documents, and redacted most of the documents. It grouped the documents in four categories: A. Full disclosure; B. Partial access with only personal data redacted; C. Partial access based on Article 4(2) and 4(3) of Regulation 1049/2001; and D. Non-disclosure.

My confirmatory application is about all documents in categories C and D (I accept that personal data like names and contact details, as identified in category B, need not be disclosed).

In a previous access to documents request, registered on 15/06/2018 under reference number GestDem 2018/3267, DG Connect redacted information with the excuse that it was “out of scope”. In the confirmatory application, registered on 07/08/2018 (Ares(201)4151471), the secretariat-general decided that wider access to the documents could be given, and that in effect information which DG Connect had said was out of scope, was actually relevant to my request.

I therefore can no longer trust DG Connect when it redacts information based on one of the exceptions in Regulation 1049/2001, and would like the secretariat-general to review the decision. In particular, I would ask that the use of the exceptions is weighed against the public interest to know how corporate lobbyists attempt to influence EU legislation and policymaking about connected cars and autonomous vehicles. Since autonomous vehicles can bring both opportunities as well as risks for the health of citizens, the public interest is great.

Finally, I would like the secretariat-general to look specifically at the decision not to disclose the documents 8 and 15 which are handwritten notes. DG Connect said that because the notes are biometric data, their disclosure would “expose [the authors] to the risk of forgery and identity theft”. I have two objections to this.

The first is that I have not asked the personal data – i.e. the name, signature, or contact details of the author of the handwritten notes – to be disclosed. Since the identity of the person who wrote the handwritten notes would remain unknown, disclosure of that person's handwriting style would not constitute any risk. A fraudster would have to find out the names of all potential authors of the note before he or she could conduct identity theft or fraud. Since DG Connect has a staff of 866, that risk is negligible.

The second objection I have is that if handwritten notes can be excluded from being published because of the mere fact that they are handwritten, this can set a dangerous precedent towards opacity. It would mean that if Commission staff would want to keep a document secret, all he or she would have to do is make sure that it exists only as a handwritten document. While I appreciate that DG Connect noted that the content of the handwritten documents was reflected in two other documents which were partially disclosed, I would like to see a copy of the original to determine independently whether that is the fact. If the secretariat-general does not agree with my first objection, a fair solution would be to have the handwritten notes retyped and a digital copy released.

All the best,
Peter Teffer
