DG ENV: TiO2 lobbying

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Environment should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Environment,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, and further to 2019/1470, I would like to request a list of all lobby meetings held with DG Environment, since 8 March 2019, where the classification of titanium dioxide (TiO2) was discussed. The list should include the names of the individuals and organisations attending; the date; and any agendas / minutes / notes produced. I would additionally like to receive any position papers, emails, or other correspondence which relates to the classification of titanium dioxide (TiO2).

This request should include all open meetings of CARACAL.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely,

Vicky Cann
