Dear Secretariat General of the European Commission,

Please pass this on to the person who reviews confirmatory applications.

I am filing the following confirmatory application with regards to my access to documents request 'Meeting with lobbying firm f30'.

My request is now nearly four weeks overdue. It covers only one specific lobby meeting and I was not told of any extension of the deadline, so I hope a review can expedite access to the documents.

As part of the review I would like to point out that my request is in the public interest, as I am a journalist and am investigating the subject in question.

Also, I would like to ask to limit possible exceptions claimed under Article 4 1. (b) of Regulation 1049/2001, as I have reason to believe the lobbyist mentioned in the document is a former senior official who is a public figure and should not be anonymized to allow scrutiny of his current role.

A full history of my request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.asktheeu.org/en/request/meet...

Yours faithfully,

Alexander Fanta
