Lobby contacts intra-EU investment protection and facilitation

Pia Eberhardt made this access to documents request to Financial Stability, Financial Services and Capital Markets 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 Madams & Sirs,

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:

1) a list of all lobby meetings (including online meetings) held by DG FISMA since 20 February 2020, in which intra-EU investment protection and facilitation (after the termination of EU member states' intra-EU investment treaties) has been discussed. The list should include: date, Commission attendees, the name of the organisation(s) attending, and a more precise topic if that exists;

2) minutes and other notes from these meetings;

3) all correspondence between DG FISMA and lobby grops, in which intra-EU investment protection and facilitation (after the termination of EU member states' intra-EU investment treaties) has been discussed (since 20 February 2020). Please note that I am aware that the Commission has published the contributions to the consultation on the issue (https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/better-reg...), so this part of my request does not refer to these published contributions.

I would appreciate if you could take the Commission’s code of good administrative behaviour into account when dealing with the first part of this request.

Yours faithfully,

Pia Eberhardt

Dear Madam,

Thank you for your e-mail of 22 December 2020. We hereby acknowledge
receipt of your application for access to documents, which was registered
on 22 December 2020 under reference number GESTDEM 2020/7947.

In accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding public access to
European Parliament, Council and Commission documents, your application
will be handled within 15 working days.

The time limit will expire on 21 January 2021. In case this time limit
needs to be extended, you will be informed in due course.

You have lodged your application via a private third-party website, which
has no link with any institution of the European Union.
Therefore, the European Commission cannot be held accountable for any
technical issues or problems linked to the use of this system.

Please note that the private third party running the AsktheEU.org website
is responsible and accountable for the processing of your personal data
via that website, and not the Commission.
For further information on your rights, please refer to the third party’s
privacy policy.

We understand that the third party running the AsktheEU.org website
usually publishes the content of applicants’ correspondence with the
Commission on that website. This includes the personal data that you may
have communicated to the Commission (e.g. your private postal address).

Similarly, the third party publishes on that website any reply that the
Commission will send to the email address of the applicants generated by
the AsktheEU.org website.

If you do not wish that your correspondence with the Commission is
published on a private third-party website such as AsktheEU.org, you can
provide us with an alternative, private e-mail address for further
correspondence. In that case, the Commission will send all future
electronic correspondence addressed to you only to that private address,
and it will use only that private address to reply to your request. You
should still remain responsible to inform the private third-party website
about this change of how you wish to communicate with, and receive a reply
from, the Commission.

For information on how we process your personal data visit our page
Privacy statement – access to documents.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Ms Eberhardt,

Please find attached document Ares(2021)1553659 from ve_fisma.dossiersacces (FISMA.A.2) dated 01/03/2021.

According to the standard procedure, a reply is usually also sent to you by registered post. Please note, however, that due to the extraordinary health and security measures currently in force during the COVID-19 pandemics, which include the requirement for all Commission non-critical staff to telework, we are unfortunately not in a position to follow this procedure until further notice.

We would therefore appreciate if you could confirm receipt of the present e-mail by replying to [email address].

Yours sincerely,
