Dear Mr Gordon,

 

we have received your confirmatory request for access to annexes 571 and
572 of the decision in merger case M.8055 (we assume that your reference
to annexes 471 and 472 was a mistake).

 

It would be helpful for our assessment of your request if you could
provide us further detail as to what information you are specifically
trying to obtain from each of the annexes and what the purpose is, for
instance if there is a public interest in disclosing that information.

 

Best regards,

Birthe Panhans

Dear Competition,
In response to your last reply.
I feel I personally have a right to the document which names me as an employee of Rofin Uk and my job role.
The other annexe naming all the key personnel and job role would be of interest to all personnel at Rofin Uk and may shed some light in to why some are classed as key personnel when the likes of Purchasing Manager is not 1 of them.

Yours faithfully,

Ian Gordon

Your confirmatory applications are currently being handled. Unfortunately,
