Dear European Parliament,

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:

Any document, currently in force, regulating the relation between MEPs, including its staff members, and lobbyists (including any internal regulations, guidelines, policies, recommendations, or others). And any information related to publication clauses related to this matter. If there are any policies applying to the political parliamentary groups and its staff working inside the EP, that's also in the scope of this request.

Yours faithfully,
Marta Morcuende
