Meeting - 12th June 2020 between Isabelle Perignon and BUSINESSEUROPE

We're waiting for Rachel Cox to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Justice and Consumers,

Referring to Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 on public access to EU documents and to the 'Aarhus Convention' I would herewith like to ask for access to the following:

All documents—including but not limited to correspondence, emails, minutes, notes (hand written or electronic), meeting conclusions, audio or video recordings, verbatim reports, operational conclusions, lines to take, briefings, and presentations—related to the meeting on 12th June 2020 between Isabelle Perignon and BUSINESSEUROPE.

In consideration of the environment and the current circumstances with the COVID pandemic I would prefer to receive documents electronically.

I would like to make clear I prefer you 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 retrieved and elected to produce.

Should my request be denied wholly or partially, please explain the denial or all deletions referring to specific exemptions in the regulation. Also I would expect the partial release of documents in case of partial exemption according to article 4.6. I reserve the right to appeal.

Please confirm having received this application. I look forward to your reply within 15 business days, according to the regulation.

If anything is unclear or would benefit from further discussion please do not hesitate to contact me by email. My address for any written correspondence necessary is Rachel Cox, Global Witness, Rue Belliard 53, 1000, Bruxelles, Belgique.

Thank you for your assistance.

Yours faithfully,

Rachel Cox
