Dear CNECT-PUBLIC-ACCESS-TO-DOCUMENTS,

I am still to receive a reply to this request that was first lodged on 4 May. It has been nearly one month since you have told me that you were in the "last step of the access to documents procedure".

When will I receive a response ?

Yours sincerely,

Margarida da Silva

Dear Communications Networks, Content and Technology,

Please pass this on to the person who reviews confirmatory applications.

I am filing the following confirmatory application with regards to my access to documents request 'Exchanges with OpenAI'.

The deadline for the DG CONNECT's response is now long overdue. The request was filled and registered on 4 May 2022. I am yet to receive a response.

I have sought updates from the department and was told on 11 August 2023 that the "application is being handled and currently undergoing the last step of the access to documents procedure. Please be assured that the reply is about to come."

That was more than a month ago. This delay has far exceeded any reasonable timeline for responding to an access to documents. By law, the department ought to have responded long ago.

As the European Ombudsman has often put it, when it comes to access to documents, access delayed is access denied. Please ensure that the response is sent as soon as possible. I would also like clarification as to why this process is so delayed.

A full history of my request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: http://www.asktheeu.org/en/request/excha...

Yours faithfully,
