Dear Health and Food Safety,

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:

(i) a list of meetings of DG SANTE officials and/or representatives (including the Commissioner and her Cabinet) and representatives of individual companies and/or industry federations (such as, but not limited to, EFPIA and/or its member companies); consultancies or law firms acting for companies/industry groups; and/or, patients groups, at which a manufacturing waiver for Supplementary Protection Certificates (SPCs) was discussed (since June 2016);

(ii) minutes and other reports of these meetings;

(iii) all correspondence (including emails) between DG SANTE officials and/or representatives (including the Commissioner and Cabinet) and representatives of companies and/or industry associations (including consultancies/law firms acting on their behalf), or patients groups, in which a manufacturing waiver for Supplementary Protection Certificates (SPCs) was discussed (since June 2016).

I would be grateful if you could take the Code of Good Administrative Behaviour into account when considering (i) of this request.

Yours sincerely,

Rachel Tansey

Dear Ms Tansey,

 

We refer to your message dated 12/10/2018  in which you make a request for
access to documents, registered on 15/10/2018 under the above mentioned
reference number.

Your application is currently being handled. However, 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 07/11/2018.

An extended time limit is needed as your application as the documents
requested originate from third parties which have been consulted.

 

Therefore, we have to extend the time limit with 15 working days in
accordance with Article 7(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding
public access to documents.

The new time limit expires on 28/11/2018.

We apologise for this delay and for any inconvenience this may cause.

 

Yours faithfully,

SANTE ACCESS TO DOCUMENTS
