Dear Human Resources and Security (HR),
Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, and subsequent to the documents received via GESTDEM 2010/859 and Gestdem 2011/6140, I am requesting all documents (emails, correspondence, meeting reports, memos, decisions etc) which relate to former Commissioner Benita Ferrero-Waldner seeking Commission approval for any additional roles or changes to already-authorised roles.
Dear Ms Cann,
Thank you for your email dated 09 October 2013, registered today under the reference Gestdem 2013/5105.
I hereby acknowledge receipt of your request for access to documents.
In accordance with Regulation 1049/2001 regarding public access to European Parliament, Council and Commission documents, you will receive a response to your request within 15 working days. The time limit will expire on 06/11/2013. In case this time limit needs to be extended, you will be informed in due course.

'Access to documents'
Dear Ms Cann,
I herewith reply to your e-mail of 9 October 2013 whereby, further to the
documents received via GESTDEM 2010/859 and GESTDEM 2011/6140, you
requested access to "all documents (emails, correspondence, meeting
reports, memos, decisions etc) which relate to former Commissioner Benita
Ferrero-Waldner seeking Commission approval for any new roles or changes
to already-authorised roles".
There are no documents corresponding to your request as former
Commissioner Benita Ferrero-Waldner did not seek the Commission's approval
for any new activity or any change in a previously authorized activity.
May I draw your attention to the fact that the former members of the
Barroso I Commission are bound by the Code of Conduct for Commissioners
adopted in November 2004 (document SEC(2004) 1487/2). This code foresees
that Commissioners shall inform the Commission whenever they intend to
engage in an occupation during the year after they have ceased to hold
office. This one-year period ended on 9 February 2011
[Réf: GESTDEM 2013/5105]
