Dear European Parliament,

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:

The reports required to be submitted by the European Commission to the European Parliament according to Article 1(41) of Directive 2018/849 amending Directive (EU) 2015/849 on the prevention of the use of the financial system for the purposes of money laundering or terrorist financing, and amending Directives 2009/138/EC and 2013/36/EU. This includes:

- the report on the implementation of the Directive required to be submitted by 11 January 2022
- the accompanying legislative proposals, if they exist

If any of these documents are publicly available, please let me know where I can find them.

Yours faithfully,
