Dear Ms. Heise,

We refer to your email 27/08/2015 in which you requested access to a list
of documents in accordance with Regulation 1049/2001.

 

The description given in your application does not enable us to identify
concrete documents which would correspond to your request. Indeed, you
refer on the one hand to meetings held by EU officials working for DG
Climate Action. On the other hand, your request concerns meetings in which
emissions and air pollution testing systems were dealt with, which is the
prerogative of DG Growth.

 

We therefore invite you, pursuant to Article 6(2) of Regulation (EC) No
1049/2001 regarding public access to documents to specify the scope of
your request.

 

Thank you in advance for your understanding.

 

Yours faithfully,

 

DG Climate Action and DG Growth

Dear Madam,

We refer to your e-mail dated 28/08/2015 in which you make a request for
access to documents, registered on 14/09/2015 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 02/10/2015.

An extended time limit is needed as your application (part of) the
documents requested originate from third parties which have been
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 23/10/2015.

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

Yours faithfully,

Access to documents Team
