Dear Trade,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

“Dear Sir/Madam,
Under the right of access to documents in the EU Treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I hereby request access to the following documents, related to the Proposal of the European Commission for a regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council laying down rules on the making available on the market of CE marked fertilising products and amending Regulations (EC) No 1069/2009 and (EC) No 1107/2009 (hereafter: the “Proposal”) and more specifically related to the topic of limits for contaminants in fertilizers, or at which such limits were discussed:
(a)
Any document related to meetings or other communications,
such as, but not limited to 1) meeting requests, 2) list of participants and parties on whose behalf such meetings were requested or whose interests were represented, 3) any materials submitted before, during or after such meetings, 4) any correspondence related to such meetings or to topics discussed or to be discussed at such meetings, 5) any follow-up documents, such as minutes, conclusions or summaries generated after such meetings,
with private parties (including third parties), their representatives, associations, or other collective bodies,
held or requested or received between 1 January 2012 and 17 March 2016,
of which the topic was, or turned out to be, limits for contaminants in fertilizers, or at which such limits were discussed;
(b)
Any document related to meetings or other communications,
such as, but not limited to 1) meeting requests, 2) list of participants and parties on whose behalf such meetings were requested or whose interests were represented, 3) any materials submitted before, during or after such meetings, 4) any correspondence related to such meetings or to topics discussed or to be discussed at such meetings, 5) any follow-up documents, such as minutes, conclusions or summaries generated after such meetings,
with private parties (including third parties), their representatives, associations, or other collective bodies,
held or requested or received between 17 March 2016 and the date of the submission of this request,
of which the topic was, or turned out to be, limits for contaminants in fertilizers, or at which such limits were discussed;
(c)
Any document, including, but not limited to, 1) internal correspondence of EC officials, as well as with outside parties, relating to limits to be proposed, 2) documents showing why specific numbers (and not other numbers) were proposed and chosen as limits for specific contaminants in the Proposal, 3) different drafts of Proposal related to contaminants and Annex I prior to its finalization, 4) your version of the Proposal, 5) your input during the inter-service consultations on the Proposal with respect to contaminant limits, 6) any opinions of lawyers relevant to contaminant limits,
held or requested or received between 1 January 2012 and the date of the submission of this request,
related to the adoption of the Proposal in the part relevant to limits on contaminants in fertilizers.

I would prefer you to produce the documents on a rolling basis. At no point should the Commission’s search for — or deliberations concerning — certain documents delay the production of others that the Commission has already in its possession and has elected to produce.
To the extent possible, I would prefer to receive the documents in machine-readable electronic format.
Should my request be denied completely or partially, please explain the denial or all deletions referring to specific exemptions in the regulation. Also, I expect the partial release of documents, in case of partial exemption according to article 4.6. of the regulation. I reserve the right to appeal.
Please confirm having received this application. I look forward to your reply within 15 working days, according to the regulation.
My address is: Kannikese tänav 10-20, Saku, Harju maakond, 75501, Estonia

Yours faithfully,

Mihkel Poola
