Dear Mr Teffer,

We refer to your letter dated 12/06/2018 in which you make a request for access to documents, registered on 13/06/2018 under the above mentioned reference number.

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 today (04/07/2018).

An extended time limit is needed as part of the documents requested originate from third parties which had 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 25/07/2018.

We apologise for this delay and for any inconvenience this may cause.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Mr Teffer,
 
please find enclosed a reply letter concerning your access to documents
request GestDem 2018/3214, a document register, and the requested
documents.
 
 
As foreseen by Article 297 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the
European Union (TFEU), decisions which specify to whom they are addressed,
shall be notified to those to whom they are addressed and shall take
effect upon such notification. Replies triggering the possibility for
administrative or judicial redress are therefore transmitted via
registered mail with acknowledgement of receipt.
 
In order to obtain legal certainty as regards the date of receipt of the
reply by the applicant under Regulation 1049/2001,  the following
categories of replies are normally sent via registered mail:
 
- Negative reply
- Partially negative reply
- Devoid of purpose reply (=no documents found)
- Reply containing documents from which personal data has been redacted
 
The letter would normally be sent to you via registered mail. However, in
connection with a previous access to documents request you requested to
receive only a digital copy of such replies.
 
Thus we consider that the fifteen-day period for making a confirmatory
request starts to run from tomorrow (the day after the reply e-mail is
sent). Please don't hesitate to let us know if this information is no
longer valid and you would like to receive the letter via registered mail.
 
Best regards,
