Grounds for exceptions in Decision(EU) 2015/529

The request was partially successful.

Helen Darbishire

Dear European Central Bank,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in ECB Decision ECB/2004/3 as amended, most recently by Decision(EU) 2015/529 of the ECB of 21 January 2015, I am requesting the following documents :

* Any documents containing a legal analysis or other evaluation of the justification of adding the following new exceptions to Article 4.1.a:

— ‘the Union's or a Member State's policy relating to the prudential supervision of credit institutions and other financial institutions,
— the purpose of supervisory inspections,
— the soundness and security of financial market infrastructures, payment schemes or payment service providers.’;

I am particularly interested to receive documents which examine or explain the justification for including these in 4.1.a rather than 4.1.b where there is a public interest override. This applies especially to supervisory inspections given that Regulation 1049/2001 places inspections in 4.2 and that the EU treaties require that any limits to the right of access be established by the Parliament and Council, and that when it comes to inspections, it was determined to apply a public interest override to this limit.

I would prefer to receive all documentation in electronic, machine readable format.

I look forward to hearing from you and should you have any need for clarifications, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours faithfully,

Helen Darbishire
