6 May 2021 RE: Access to Documents related to Carbon Adjustment Mechanism.

Dear DG energy, DG Clima, Dg Grow, Secretariat General, DG Trade,

Referring to Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 on public access to EU documents, I would herewith like to ask for access to the following:

1- all correspondence (including email) between 1st january 2021 and 6th May 2021 between Commissioner Simson, Commissioner Timmermans, Commissioner Breton, President van der Leyen, Commissioner Dombrovskis, and/or their cabinets and/or officials from DG Energy, DG Clima, DG Grow, DG Trade and Secretariat General on one hand and stakeholders on the other, where the issue of the carbon border adjustment mechanism is addressed.

2 - list of meetings/videocalls/calls between 1st December 2020 and 6th May 2021 between officials and/or representatives of the European Commission and stakeholders where the issue of the carbon border adjustment mechanism is addressed.

3 - minutes of the meetings/videocalls/calls mentioned above.

I would like to make clear I prefer you produce the documents on a rolling basis.
At no point should the Commission’s search for—or deliberations concerning—certain documents delay the production of others that the Commission has already retrieved and elected to produce.

To the extent possible, we prefer the documents in electronic format. Documents that cannot be sent in electronic format should be sent to Corporate Europe Observatory, Rue d’Edimbourg 26, 1050 Brussels.

Should my request be denied wholly or partially, please explain the denial or all deletions referring to specific exemptions in the regulation. Also I expect the partial release of documents, in case of partial exemption according to article 4.6.

I reserve the right to appeal.

Please confirm having received this application. I look forward to your reply within 15 business days, according to the regulation.

Thank you for your assistance.

Dear Madam,

 

Thank you for your e-mail of 6 May 2021. We hereby acknowledge receipt of
your application for access to documents, which was registered on
07/05/2021 under reference number GESTDEM 2021/3012.

European Parliament, Council and Commission documents, your application
will be handled within 15 working days.

 

The time limit will expire on 2 June 2021. In case this time limit needs
to be extended, you will be informed in due course.

 

You have lodged your application via a private third-party website, which
has no link with any institution of the European Union.

Therefore, the European Commission cannot be held accountable for any
technical issues or problems linked to the use of this system.

 

Please note that the private third party running the AsktheEU.org website
is responsible and accountable for the processing of your personal data
