To the European Parliament,
Under the right of access to documents, as tabled in art. 15 TFEU and granted by art. 42 of the European Charter of Fundamental Rights and currently framed by Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents authored by the EP or available to it, which contain the following information:
- justifications for seeking early agreements on the current co-decision procedures put forward in all committees
- multicolumn tables (describing the Commission proposal, the Parliamentary Committee orientation, the Council internal bodies suggested amendements and, if existing, suggested draft compromises) submitted to trialogues for the current pending co-decision procedures
I would like to obtain them
- in ENGLISH or, if not available in FRENCH
- in electronic format
Thanks in Advance!

Dear Mr De Capitani,
Further to your request submitted to the European Parliament under Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 on 15 April 2015 regarding public access to documents held by the institution in connexion with current pending codecision procedures, we would like to inform you that your request is under consideration.
Parliament is currently dealing with around 140 legislative files under codecision/ordinary legislative procedure, certain of them under negotiations, with a view to reaching an agreement early in the legislative process. Clear identification of all the individual files concerned, and relevant documents, falling within the scope of your request is in progress by the relevant parliament competent services.
As far as your request for multicolumn tables is concerned, please be aware that the joint nature of these documents, as recognised by Parliament's Rules of Procedure, requires Parliament to launch the necessary consultation with Council and Commission, pursuant Article 4(4) of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001.
Taking into account that your application relates to a very large number of documents, and in consideration of the need to allow adequate time for the conclusion of the consultation procedure under Article 4(4) of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001, Parliament is obliged to extend the deadline for processing your reply by further 15 working days, in accordance with Article 7(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001.
Thus, the new deadline expires on 02 June 2015.
Parliament apologises for any inconvenience this may cause and remain at your disposal for further information and/ or clarification(s).
