List WK documents (March 07th until March 30th 2023) and texts of some pending legislative procedures.

Emilio made this access to documents request to Council of the European Union

Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Council of the European Union,

Under art 15.2 TFEU, dealing with Legislative Transparency, as well as under art. 15.3 of the same Treaty framing the right of access to documents (art 42 of the EU Charter) I am hereby requesting

1 - a LIST of the WK documents linked to EU legislative procedures and shared inside the Council Working Parties between 07th and 30th March 2023.

2 - the TEXT of the WK and ST legislative preparatory documents linked to the following legislative procedures on which soon legislative trilogues will be launched:

2020/0279 (COD) AMMR (Ex Dublin)
2020/0277 (COD) (Crisis /Force majeure)
2016/0224(COD) (Asylum Procedure)
2020/0278(COD) (Asylum Screening Procedure)

May I take this occasion to stress that, according to art. 15.2 TFEU and art. 12 of Regulation 1049/01 preparatory documents of legislative nature should be made directly accessible on the Council Register of documents (unless a specific exception must be applied when they are created and registered).

Indeed proactively publishing in a timely manner legislative preparatory documents will save time and work not only of the requested Institution but also of the EU Citizens interested in following the EU legislative negotiations. Therefore It would be paradoxical that the Institution's self standing constitutional obligation (foreseen by art. 15.2 of the TFEU) of being transparent when acting as legislator, should depend from the Citizen’s initiative of requesting, or not, legislative preparatory documents.

Thanks in advance for your understanding.

Yours faithfully,

Emilio De Capitani
