Dear Secretariat General (SG),

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting all correspondence received and sent (including emails) and meeting minutes between the Secretariat General and external groups on the topic of the 2013 review of Transparency Register.

Dear Madam,
We refer to your e-mails dated 18/12/2013 in which you make two requests
for access to documents, registered on 03/01/2014 under the above
mentioned reference numbers.
Your application is currently being handled. However, we will not be in a
position to complete the handling of your application within the time
limit of 15 working days, which expires on 24/01/2014.
An extended time limit is needed as your application concerns some
documents originate from third parties which have to be consulted.
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 14/02/2014.
We apologise for this delay and for any inconvenience this may cause.
Yours faithfully,

Dear Madam,
We refer to your e-mails dated 18/12/2013 in which you make two requests
for access to documents, registered on 03/01/2014 under the above
mentioned reference numbers.
The handling of your request involves the assessment of many documents
originating from third parties. The analysis of these documents, together
with the need to consult the third parties concerned in accordance with
Article 4(4) of Regulation 1049/2001, cannot be expected to be completed
within the normal time limits set out in Article 7 of Regulation
1049/2001.
 
However, the Regulation also provides for a possibility to confer with
applicants in order to find a fair solution when an application concerns a
very large number of documents. Article 6(3) provides that "in the event
of an application relating to a very long document or to very large number
of documents, the institution concerned may confer with the applicant
informally, with a view to finding a fair solution".
 
Based on this provision, we would suggest you a more extended deadline for
the sending of these documents. We propose you a new deadline on 14 April
2014. You will receive at the latest at this date the documents which have
been cleared for release or a reasoned reply explaining why some documents
cannot be disclosed.
 
If you have any questions concerning this proposal, you can contact us:
•       by email to: [1][email address]
•       by telephone to: (+32) (0) 2 299 11 21 or (+32)(0) 2 295 60 28
 
Thank you in advance for your understanding.

Dear Secretariat General (SG),

As you have extended the deadline for my two documents requests several times and the latest deadline is now four months since I first applied, I would like to ask that you immediately provide a list of all the documents which are relevant to my requests and that you supply the documents on a rolling basis as they become available.

I look forward to hearing from you and to receive a confirmation from you that we can proceed on the basis that I have outlined.

Yours faithfully,

Vicky Cann

Secretariat General of the European Commission

Dear Ms Cann,

send you the documents on a rolling basis as they become available. We are
moreover doing our best to speed up the overall treatment of your request.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Ms Cann,

Within the consultation process that we are conducting in the framework of the above-mentioned request for access to documents under Article 4(4) of Regulation 1049/2001, some of the third parties consulted asked to know the name of the applicant of the request.

Would you consent to disclosing your first and last name and the organisation on whose behalf you introduced the request?

Please know that in accordance with Regulation 1049/2001 and Regulation 45/2001, you are not obliged to provide these data. We are only consulting you to enquire whether you would like to provide them on a voluntary basis.

May I ask for a reply within five working days? In the absence of any reply, we will consider that you do not agree with disclosure of the requested data, and will not release them.

Yours sincerely,

Mélanie Bossuroy
