We're waiting for Amélie Canonne to read a recent response and update the status.

Amélie Canonne

Dear Madams & Sirs,

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:

1) a list of meetings of DG Trade officials and/or representatives (including the Commissioner and the Cabinet) and representatives of individual companies and/or industry federations during which the energy issues in relation with the EU-US trade agreement were discussed.

2) minutes and other reports of these meetings;

3) all correspondence (including emails) between DG Trade officials and/or representatives (including the Commissioner and the Cabinet) and representatives of companies, business associations and law firms, in which energy issues, including the EU-US and EU-Canada FTA, were discussed.

I would be grateful to you to consider my request from the 1st of January 2013 on.
Please note however that it does not relate to the contributions
to the Commission's public consultations which took place regarding the EU-US agreement.

In advance many thanks for your efforts to respond.
Yours faithfully,

Amélie Canonne

Dear Ms Canonne,

Could you please clarify your request under point 3). We would be looking for confirmation that you mean energy issues in relation with TTIP and CETA, and not energy issues in general terms.

Also, as your request covers potentially a large number of documents, we would appreciate any other narrowing of scope or indication of priorities in terms of receiving the documents under the below mentioned points 1,2 and 3.

Thank you for your cooperation on this.

Best regards,
DG Trade

Dear Trade,

thank you for your answer.

Under the point 3 of my request : it regards only energy issues related to trade negotiations and agreements.
Please note also that am asking correspondance and emails between the DG trade officials and representatives of companies, business associations, lobbies and law firms, and not ANY correspondance on the issue.

My request on this point 3 regards more particularly the following trade agreements or negotiations :
- EU-Colombia/Peru
- EU-Ecuador
- EU-Myanmar
- EU-Tunisia and EU-Egypt
- EU-Canada = the CETA
- EU-USA = the TTIP
- the EGA

Does it clarify a bit ?
Thank you very much for your attention.

Yours faithfully,

Amélie Canonne

Dear Ms Canonne,

Dear Ms Canonne,

With reference to you above mentioned request, we would like to let you know that your application is currently being handled. However, we were not in a position to complete the handling of your application within the time limit of 15 working days, which expires today.

Dear Marie-France,

i would like to thank you very much for this effort, this is very useful.

I've got a final request though, simpler : i would like to get the list of the meetings held between DG Trade and civil society groups and NGOs on the same topic (energy aspects of trade agreements) and for the same period of time (2014-2015).

My purpose is to compare the number of those with the number of meetings held with industrial groups and lobbies.

Thank you very much in advance
And best regards,

Amélie Canonne
