Dear Mrs. Da Silva,
 
We refer to your application sent on 7 September 2017 in which you lodge
an initial request under Article 6(1) of Regulation (EC) N° 1049/2001 for
access to:
 
- all minutes, notes and other reports relating to the meetings between
Commissioner Timmermans'  cabinet members and BusinessEurope on the
22/09/2016; 15/11/2016; 16/05/2017.
 
- all correspondence (including emails) between Commissioner Timmermans
and his cabinet with BusinessEurope.
 
The description in the second paragraph of your request  is very broad and
does not enable us to identify concrete documents which would correspond
to your requests.  Therefore, we ask you, pursuant to Art 6(2) of
Regulation 1049/2001, to provide details on the:
 
- subject matter of the meetings in which you would be interested;
- the dates or periods during which the correspondence in which you are
interested would have been produced.
 
If you need assistance in clarifying or specifying your application,
please feel free to contact us. => SG ACCES DOCUMENTS

Thank you in advance for your understanding.
 
Best regards,

Dear Secretariat General of the European Commission,

Thank you for following. I assume that when your request for clarification relates only to:

"- all correspondence (including emails) between Commissioner Timmermans
and his cabinet with BusinessEurope. "

To clarify, I am interested in correspondence relating to transparency policies since November 2014.

I hope that helps.

Yours faithfully,

Margarida da Silva
