Dear Mr Huebner

We refer to your e-mail  dated 28/11/2016 in which you make a request for
access to documents, registered on 29/11/2016 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 20/12/2016.

An extended time limit is needed as your application as the application
concerns a large number of documents and it might be that third parties
will 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 18/01/2017.

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

Yours faithfully,

 

Maria Giovanna Zamburlini
