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 Conflict minerals regulation was 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 the Conflict Minerals regulation was addressed.

I would be grateful to you to consider my request from the 1st of
January 2014 on.
Please note however that it does not relate to the contributions
to the Commission's public consultations.

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

Dear Ms Canonne,

We refer to your e-mail of 19/05/2015 in which you make a request for access to documents, registered on the same day under the above mentioned 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 expires tomorrow.
An extended time limit is needed as your application concerns a large number of documents that we need to assess individually.

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 01/07/2015.

We apologise for this delay and for any inconvenience this may cause.

Best regards,
DG Trade

Dear Ms Canonne,

We have needed some more time to finalize this reply and the documents for you. The file is now ready, but needs to circulate and again, it is very large and might take some days before it is signed. We will aim at end of next week.

Our apologies for the delay and we thank you for your patience.

Best regards,
DG TRADE

Dear Marie-France,

i'd like first to thank you for your efforts, which are very much appreciated. I am aware that it required much work, thank you very much.
We'll now go deep into the documents.
However at the first sight it sounds that the annex 10-20 are not here.
Am i wrong or did misunderstand the list ?

Yours faithfully,

Amélie Canonne
