Dear Madam,

 

Thank you for your e-mail of 29 June 2020. We hereby acknowledge receipt
of your application for access to documents, which was registered on 30
June 2020 under reference numbers

 

-          GESTDEM 2020/3941 for DG TAXUD;

-          GESTDEM 2020/3942 for DG TRADE.

 

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
July 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 AsktheEU.org 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.

Dear Madam,

 

We refer to your request dated 29/06/2020 in which you make a request for
access to documents, registered on 30/06/2020 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 which expires on
22/07/2020.

 

An extended time limit for more in-depth investigations and third party
consultations is needed in order to complete our assessment on the
possibility for the public disclosure of the documents requested.

 

Therefore, we have to extend the time limit in accordance with Article
7(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding public access to documents.
We will do our utmost to provide you with a reply by 12/08/2020.

 

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.

 

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

 

Yours faithfully,
