Dear DG Communication,
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:
Please provide the "line to take" or any instructions or memos provided by DG TRADE to the spokesperson's service of the European Commission related to the Mercosur-EU agreement one month before 28 Jun 2019, and one month after, inclusive of that date. Please also include all internal memos, emails, correspondence, or meeting agendas or notes within this period that relate to public communication of the Mercosur-EU agreement, including all briefing documents and talking points for spokesperson's representatives speaking to journalists on the issue.
Dear Mr Norton,
Thank you for your request for access to documents, addressed to DG COMM.
Since the requested documents originate from DG TRADE, DG COMM has
requested us to take over your request.
Unfortunately you have not indicated your postal address that is required
for registering and handling your request in line with the procedural
requirements. Please send us your full postal address at your earliest
convenience. Pending your reply, we reserve the right to refuse the
registration of your request.
You have lodged your application via the AsktheEU.org website. We
understand that the third party running that website usually publishes the
content of applicants’ correspondence with the European Commission on that
website. This includes the personal data that you may have communicated to
the European Commission (e.g. your private postal address). If you do not
wish your correspondence with the European Commission to be published on
the AsktheEU.org website, you can provide us with an alternative, private
e-mail address for further correspondence. In that case, the European
Commission will send all future electronic correspondence addressed to you
only to that private address.
You may, of course, use directly the electronic form for entering your
