Dear Madam,

 

Thank you for your e-mail dated 13/03/2020. We hereby acknowledge receipt
of your application for access to documents, which was registered on
22/10/2019 under reference number GestDem 2020/1499.

 

In accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding public access to
European Parliament, Council and Commission documents, your application
will be handled within 15 working days. The time limit will expire on
03/04/2020. In case this time limit needs to be extended, you will be
informed in due course.

 

You have lodged your application via the AsktheEU.org website. Please note
that this is a private third-party website which has no link with any
institution of the European Union. Therefore, the European Commission
cannot be held accountable for any technical issues or problems linked to
the use of this system.

 

Please note that the private third party running the AsktheEU.org website
is responsible and accountable for the processing of your personal data
via that website, and not the European Commission. For further information
on your rights, please refer to the third party’s privacy policy.

 

We understand that the third party running that website usually publishes
the content of applicants’ correspondence with the European Commission on
that website. This includes the personal data that you may have
communicated to the European 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 your correspondence with the European Commission to be
published on the AsktheEU.org website, you can provide us with an
alternative, private e-mail address for further correspondence. In that
case, the European Commission will send all future electronic
correspondence addressed to you only to that private address.

 

 

Yours faithfully,

 

 

 

European Commission

Dear Ms Vaughan,

We refer to your e-mail dated 13/03/2020 in which you make a request for access to documents, registered on 13/03/2020 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 on 03/04/2020.

Dear Ms Vaughan,

Further to your email on the above mentioned request for access to documents, please find enclosed a letter and annexes from the Cabinet of Commissioner Jutta Urpilainen.

According to standard operational procedure, the reply is usually also sent to you by registered post. However, please note that, due to the extraordinary health and security measures currently in force during the COVID-19 pandemics, which include the requirement for all Commission non-critical staff to telework, we are unfortunately not in a position to follow this procedure until further notice.

We would therefore appreciate if you could confirm receipt of the present e-mail by replying to the following email address: [email address].

Yours sincerely,

Koen Doens
