We're waiting for Kirsten to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Communications Networks, Content and Technology,

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:

- all communication sent to and received from Members States and their National Regulatory Authorities to prepare the implementation report of the Regulation (EU) 2015/2120 (Open Internet Regulation) which is due on 30 April 2019

- all communication sent to and received from Member States and National Regulatory Authorities to follow upon annual reporting obligations under the Regulation (EU) 2015/2120 (Open Internet Regulation).

Please note I'm requesting access only to anonymized communications and documents without personally identifiable information.

Yours faithfully,

Kirsten

Dear Madam,

 

Thank you for your e-mail dated 14/02/2019. We hereby acknowledge receipt
of your application for access to documents, which was registered on
14/02/2019 under reference number GestDem 2019/0866.

 

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 07/03/2019. In case this time limit needs to
be extended, you will be informed in due course.

 

You have lodged your application via the AsktheEU.org website. Please note
that this is 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 European Commission. For further information
on your rights, please refer to the third party’s privacy policy.

 

We understand that the third party running that website usually publishes
the content of applicants’ correspondence with the European Commission on
that website. This includes the personal data that you may have
communicated to the European 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 your correspondence with the European Commission to be
published on the AsktheEU.org website, you can provide us with an
alternative, private e-mail address for further correspondence.

 

In that case, the European Commission will send all future electronic
correspondence addressed to you only to that private address.

 

Yours faithfully,

Dear Ms. Fiedler,

We refer to your access to documents application received on 14/02/2019
and registered on the same date 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 07/03/2019.

An extended time limit is needed as several Commission services must be
consulted.

Therefore, we have to extend the time limit by 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 28/03/2019.

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

Yours faithfully,

Dear Ms Fiedler,

 

We refer to your access to documents application received on 14/02/2019
and registered on the same date under the above mentioned reference
number.

 

The identification of documents takes more time than expected since the
European Commission is in principle not directly involved in direct
communication with Member States’ national regulatory authorities for the
preparation of the implementation report of the Open Internet Regulation.
All exchanges go through the Body of European Regulators for Electronic
Communications (BEREC). The Commission only has a limited role in this.

[5]https://berec.europa.eu/eng/document_reg...

 

We identified some documents at a late stage and for each of these
documents, a thorough assessment must be undertaken pursuant to Regulation
1049/2001.

 

Yours sincerely,

Dear Communications Networks, Content and Technology,

Please pass this on to the person who reviews confirmatory applications.

I am filing the following confirmatory application with regards to my access to documents request 'Communications with Member States on the Open Internet Regulation implementation'.

First of all, point (i) of your letter dated 23 April 2019 will no longer be applicable once the report has been published by the European Commission. I therefore request a review of the decision and the release of the requested documents after 30 April 2019.

Secondly, regarding point (ii) of your letter, I understand the necessity to protect the privacy of individuals involved. However, and as per my initial request, I would like to receive the requested documents as I would like to ask for access only to anonymised communications and documents where personally identifiable information has been redacted.

A full history of my request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.asktheeu.org/en/request/comm...

Yours faithfully,
Kirsten Fiedler
