We hereby acknowledge receipt of your application for access to documents,

European Parliament, Council and Commission documents, your application

The time limit will expire on 04/03/2021. In case this time limit needs to

You have lodged your application via a private third-party website, which

Therefore, the European Commission cannot be held accountable for any
technical issues or problems linked to the use of this system.

We understand that the third party running the AsktheEU.org website
usually publishes the content of applicants’ correspondence with the
Commission on that website. This includes the personal data that you may
have communicated to the 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 that your correspondence with the Commission is
published on a private third-party website such as AsktheEU.org, you can
provide us with an alternative, private e-mail address for further
correspondence. In that case, the Commission will send all future
electronic correspondence addressed to you only to that private address,
and it will use only that private address to reply to your request. You
should still remain responsible to inform the private third-party website
about this change of how you wish to communicate with, and receive a reply
from, the Commission.

Dear Mr Carter,
We refer to your e-mail of 11/02/2021 in which you make a request for
access to documents, registered on 11/02/2021 under reference number
Your application is currently being handled. However, we will not be in a
position to complete the handling of your application within the time
limit of 15 working days, which expired on 04/03/2021.
An extended time limit is needed as the application concerns documents
held by different Services, which must be consulted.
Therefore, we have to extend the time limit with 15 working days in
accordance with Article 7(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding
public access to documents. The new time limit expires on 25/03/2021.
We apologise for this delay and for any inconvenience, this may cause.
With kind regards,
