Dear DG Trade,

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 authored by the Trans-Atlantic Business Council (TABC) and/or the Trans-Atlantic Business Dialogue (TABD) in which US-EU trade relations were mentioned or discussed between January 1, 2018 and July 27, 2018.

- All correspondence (including emails) between DG Trade officials (including the Commissioner and the Cabinet) and members and/or representatives of the Trans-Atlantic Business Council (TABC) and/or the Trans-Atlantic Business Dialogue (TABD) in which US-EU trade relations were mentioned or discussed between January 1, 2018 and July 27, 2018.

- A list of meetings including detailed minutes and any other reports of such meetings between DG TRADE's officials (including the Commissioner and his Cabinet members) and members and/or representatives of the Trans-Atlantic Business Council (TABC) and/or the Trans-Atlantic Business Dialogue (TABD) in which US-EU trade relations were mentioned or discussed between January 1, 2018 and July 27, 2018.

- All correspondence (including emails) between DG Trade officials (including the Commissioner and the Cabinet) themselves, and members and/or representatives of the Trans-Atlantic Business Council (TABC) and/or the Trans-Atlantic Business Dialogue (TABD) about or mentioning the Joint U.S.-EU Statement following President Juncker's visit to the White House that was released on July 25, 2018.

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 adress will be forwarded to you.

Thank you for your assistance.

Yours faithfully,
Hans Wetzels

Dear Mr Wetzels,

 

We refer to your request for access to documents registered on 09/08/2018
under reference number GestDem 2018/4317.

 

Your application is currently being handled. However, due to the heavy
workload on a large number of requests, 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 31/08/2018.

 

Therefore, we have to extend the time limit with 15 working days in

public access to documents. The new time limit expires on 21/09/2018.

Yours sincerely,
