Dear Taxation and Customs Union,

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:

Copia de la comunicación que el Directorate-General for Taxation and Customs Union envió el pasado mes de abril al Gobiernos de cada estado miembros para avisar de que no se sancionaría a los países que bajaran el IVA de productos como las mascarillas y copia de la respuesta a esa comunicación del Gobierno de cada estado miembro. Solicito también copia de todas y cada una de las comunicaciones que el Gobierno de cada estado haya mandado preguntando si se podía reducir el IVA de las mascarillas o alguna cuestión similar, tanto si han sido previas a la comunicación de abril del Directorate-General for Taxation and Customs Union como si han sido posteriores.

Yours faithfully,

Sergio Pérez Sangiao

Dear Taxation and Customs Union,

Solicito que se tramite esta solicitud de acceso a documentos de forma independiente, en ella pido las comunciaciones con el Gobierno de cada estado miembro, no sólo con España como pedía en la anterior que mencionáis. Esa, además, ya ha sido resuelta y sólo me facilitáis las comunicaciones con el Gobierno español y las respuestas de este y no las del resto de Gobiernos de estados miembros como yo solicitaba en la presente solicitud.

Gracias.

Yours faithfully,

Sergio Pérez Sangiao

Dear Sir,

We have taken note of your request sent below. After analysis of your question, DG TAXUD considered that this request was also covered by the documents and information that you have received with our letter of 27 November 2020 (Letter Gestdem 2020/6490 in reply to your request sent with e-mail of 27 October 2020). In addition, we have made a reference to recital 2 of the Commission Decision of 3.4.2020 on relief from import duties and VAT exemption on importation granted for goods needed to combat the effects of the COVID-19 outbreak during 2020, in which you will find a list of the Member States requesting this decision (following the note of the Commission dated 20/3/2020).

In the meantime we have received your confirmatory request to review letter Gestdem 2020/6490. Please note, that this is now in the hands of the Secretariat General.

Best regards,

Dear Mr. Perez Sangiao,

 

Be informed that we will treat this request independently. All Member
States received the same communication note of the Commission and they
replied by e-mail.

 

Please, note that for every document originating of a Member State , we
need to consult that Member State and ask if the document can be released
. Together with the search for the emails and the redaction of the
personal data, this will take time (more than 15 working days).

 

I recall that all the Member States that replied positively on the note of
the Commission can be found in the recital 2 of the Decision of April
2020.

 

For further correspondence, would it be possible to contact via your
private e-mail address as explained in our notification?  

 

Best regards,

Dear Sir,

 

Thank you for your request of 27/11/2020. We hereby acknowledge receipt of
your application for access to documents, which was registered on
01/12/2020 under reference number GESTDEM 2020/7442.

 

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
22/12/2020. 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 Ask the EU 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.

 

For information on how we process your personal data visit our page
Privacy statement – access to documents.

 

Please be informed that the Commission has taken precautionary measures to
contain the spread of the COVID-19 virus and reduce the risk of infection
of our staff, while ensuring business continuity. Since 16 March, all
colleagues in non-critical functions are teleworking. This may have an
effect on the physical search of documents and internal/external
consultations. As a consequence, the procedure to handle your applications
may take longer than foreseen.

 

Yours faithfully,

 

Access to Documents Team

Dear Taxation and Customs Union,

Muchas gracias por tramitar de forma independiente esta solicitud. Si necesitáis un correo electrónico mío es [email address]. Aprovecho para recordar también que mi solicitud remarcaba de forma clara que pedía tanto las respuestas a esa comunicación de abril, com otras posibles consultas de los estados miembros relativas al IVA de las mascarillas: 'Solicito también copia de todas y cada una de las comunicaciones que el Gobierno de cada estado haya mandado preguntando si se podía reducir el IVA de las mascarillas o alguna cuestión similar, tanto si han sido previas a la comunicación de abril del Directorate-General for Taxation and Customs Union como si han sido posteriores'.

Muchas gracias,
Yours faithfully,

Sergio Pérez Sangiao
