Dear DG Clima,

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:

- Any study, impact assessment, forecast, paper or other document - commissioned or authored by any part of the European Commission, mentioning or concerning the ratification of the EU-Canada Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) between September 2019 and the 20th of May 2022.

- a list of meetings including detailed minutes and any other reports of such meetings between DG CLIMA officials (including the Commissioner and his Cabinet members) mentioning or concerning the ratification of the EU-Canada Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) between September 2019 and the 20th of May 2022.

- All correspondence (including emails) by DG CLIMA officials (including the Commissioner and his Cabinet members) sent to or received, mentioning or concerning the ratification of the EU-Canada Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) between September 2019 and the 20th of May 2022.

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.

Do not hesitate to get back to me should you need any further information which could facilitate your research. My postal address hereby:
Hans Wetzels
Naarderstraat 153
2574PG, Den Haag
The Netherlands

Thank you for your assistance.

Dear Sir,

Thank you for your e-mail of 20 May 2022. We hereby acknowledge receipt of
your application for access to documents, which was registered today under
reference number 2022/2979.

In accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding public access to
European Parliament, Council and Commission documents, your application
will be handled within 15 working days.

The time limit will expire on 17 June 2022. 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
via that website, and not the Commission.
For further information on your rights, please refer to the third party’s
privacy policy.

We understand that the third party running the AsktheEU.org website
usually publishes the content of applicants’ correspondence with the
Commission on that website. This includes the personal data that you may
have communicated to the Commission (e.g. your private postal address).

Similarly, the third party publishes on that website any reply that the
Commission will send to the email address of the applicants generated by
the AsktheEU.org website.

If you do not wish that your correspondence with the Commission is
published on a private third-party website such as AsktheEU.org, you can
provide us with an alternative, private e-mail address for further
correspondence. In that case, the Commission will send all future
electronic correspondence addressed to you only to that private address,
and it will use only that private address to reply to your request. You
should still remain responsible to inform the private third-party website
about this change of how you wish to communicate with, and receive a reply
from, the Commission.
