Documents relating to meetings of the "Transatlantic Economic Council"

The request was successful.

Dear Madams and Sirs,

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 meetings of the “Transatlantic Economic Council” that were held in 2017 and 2018. The list should include the names of the individuals and organisations attending; the date; and any agendas / minutes / notes produced.

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

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely,

Pia Eberhardt
Rue d’Edimbourg 26

Dear Ms Eberhardt,


We refer to your request for access to documents registered on 20/09/2018
under the reference number GestDem 2018/4930.


Your application is currently being handled. However, due to the heavy
workload on a large number of requests, we will not be in a position to
complete the handling of your application within the time limit of 15
working days, which expires today on 11/10/2018.


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 05/11/2018.
