Dear Climate Action,

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:

A complete of list of all meetings held by any member of your team/staff with churches, religious associations or communities, as well as with philosophical and non-confessional organisations, from 1 January 2014 onwards, specifying the status of the organization (church, religious association or community, philosophical association or non-confessional association).
All documents, including all emails, minutes, reports or other documents received or drawn up before, during or after the meetings, and any other briefing papers related to these meetings.
I would prefer to receive this information in a machine-readable electronic format.
Do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions related to my request.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Madam,

 

Thank you for your e-mail dated 29 March 2019. We hereby acknowledge
receipt of your application for access to documents, which was registered
on 1 April 2019 under reference number GestDem 2019/2007.

 

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 25
April 2019. In case this time limit needs to be extended, you will be
informed in due course.

 

You have lodged your application via the AsktheEU.org website. Please note
that this is 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 European Commission. For further information
on your rights, please refer to the third party’s privacy policy.

 

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).

 

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 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.

 

 

Yours faithfully,

Dear Ms Marti,

We refer to your e-mail dated 29 March 2019 in which you make a request
for access to documents, registered on 1 April 2019 under the above
mentioned reference number.

I am currently handling your application and the description given does
not enable me to conduct a proper research of the correspondence/documents
with the given organisations (churches, religious associations or
communities, as well as with philosophical and non-confessional
organisations). I understand that the description of the organisations is
too broad to ensure that all the documents that you seek to obtain are
identified.

We therefore invite you, pursuant to Article 6(2) of Regulation (EC) No
1049/2001 regarding public access to documents, to provide us with more
detailed information on the documents which you seek to obtain. In
particular, we would be grateful if you could provide us with the list of
organisations from which you seek to obtain the correspondence/documents.

If you need assistance in clarifying or specifying your application, you
can contact us by email to: [1][DG CLIMA request email]

In accordance with Article 2, third paragraph of the Implementing Rules to
Regulation 1049/2001[2][1], the 15 working days time limit for handling
your application will start running when we receive the requested
clarifications.

Thank you in advance for your understanding.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Climate Action,

I can not give you more detailed information, as that is all the information the law I am based on provides. Please, understand those terms in the same way the article 3 of COMMISSION DECISION of 25 November 2014 (on the publication of information on meetings held between Directors-General of the Commission and organisations or self-employed individuals) does.

Moreover, the Agreement between the European Parliament and the European Commission on the transparency register for organisations and self-employed individuals engaged in EU policy-making and policy implementation (19.9.2014) establishes that transparency register does not apply to churches, religious communities. As such, I cannot identify them in advance and I expected you, as one of the bodies of the EC applying this transparency requirements to lobbyists, to do it.

Yours faithfully,

Josefina Martí
