Meetings between FuelsEurope and DG ENER

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Energy should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Energy,

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:

All documentation (including but not limited to all email correspondence, attendance lists, agendas, background papers, transcripts, recordings and minutes/notes) relating to the meetings listed below:

1. Between FuelsEurope and Commissioner Kadri Simson on 27th November 2020.

2. Between FuelsEurope and Laure Chapuis-Kombos and Stefano Grassi, cabinet members of Commissioner Kadri Simson on 27th November 2020.

I would prefer you to produce the documents on a rolling basis, rather than waiting until the full response is ready, and I would be pleased to receive an initial list of all documents as soon as possible.

Yours faithfully,

Alex Cranston
40 Bermondsey Street
London, Energy

Your application is currently being handled. However, we will not be in a
position to complete the handling of your application within the time
