Dear DG Environment

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I would like to request a list of all lobby meetings held by any of the 15 organisations listed below, with DG Environment, since 1 September 2017, 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) by these 15 lobby groups.

I would be very grateful if you would release documents when they are retrieved, rather than waiting until the full reply is ready.

Dear Environment,

Thank you for this reply. Please note that your letter said that you would post the following documents: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36 and 37.

But I understand that they have yet to arrive in the CEO office. Please might you check if this has been done and/ or resend them?

Yours faithfully,

Vicky Cann

Dear Environment,

Thank you for the reply. I am afraid that the documents appear to be missing. Of course, I am sure that they were signed for by Mundo B, but it is a shared building and somehow, in the middle of the summer holidays, they have not reached me. My colleagues have searched the CEO office and have not found them. Is it at all possible to request a duplicate set? I must apologise for the big hassle and do hope this might be possible.

Thanks in advance. Yours faithfully,

Vicky Cann

Dear Environment,

These documents have now reached me. Many thanks again for your help and patience.

Yours faithfully,

Vicky Cann
