Dear Sir,

 

Thank you for your e-mail of 23 September 2021, addressed to the
Secretariat-General, from email address
[FOI #9968 email]. We hereby acknowledge receipt of
this application for access to documents, which was registered on 24
September 2021 under reference number GESTDEM 2021/5742.

 

The Secretariat-General received an identical request from you sent from
email address [email address] at the same time. As
it is identical to request GESTDEM 2021/5742, we will not register this
request.

 

We note that you also addressed this request to Commission services DG
TRADE and DG INTPA, as well as to the EEAS.

 

In accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding public access to
European Parliament, Council and Commission documents, your application
registered under reference GESTDEM 2021/5742 will be handled within 15
working days.

 

The time limit will expire on 15 October 2021. 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.

[5]Privacy statement – access to documents.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Mr Stolton,

We refer to your email of 23 September 2021 in which you make a request
for access to documents, registered on 24 September 2021 under the
above-mentioned reference number.

The description given in your application makes it very difficult for us
to identify concrete documents, which would correspond to your request.

We therefore invite you, in accordance with Article 6(2) of Regulation
(EC) No 1049/2001 regarding public access to documents, to provide us with
more detailed information on the documents you request.

In order to properly address and allocate your request, we would firstly
like to know in which particular topic addressed under the TTC umbrella
you are interested in. You will be aware that discussions in the TTC cover
a broad spectrum of trade and technology related issues, and are therefore
organised in ten dedicated working groups with different Commission
Services (co-) leading them.

Secondly, we would like to understand better what kind of meetings
(internal, external with stakeholders) you are interested in, and would
kindly ask you to further specify what you have described so far in your
application by ‘ “general communications” of any nature’ and by ‘written
material of any kind’. Finally, your request related to all “documentation
produced after September 12, 2021”, we would appreciate if you could
indicate persons or bodies who should be the focus of your request.

If you need assistance in clarifying or specifying your application, you
can contact us by email to SG UNITE D-1 [5][email address]

In accordance with the third paragraph of Article 2 of the Detailed rules
for the application of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 (Official Journal
OJ L 345, 29.12.2001, p. 94), the deadline of 15 working days for handling
your application will start running when we receive the requested
clarifications.

We thank you in advance for your understanding.

Best Regards

The Secretariat SG.D1

I refer to your email of 9 June 2022, by which you lodge a confirmatory

Regulation 1049/2001 regarding public access to European Parliament,

clarification sent by our SG.D.1 colleagues on 06/10/2021 and a reminder
sent on 26/10/2021 - please find them in attach.

Consequently, the Commission is not in a position to handle your
