Dear Secretariat General of the European Commission,

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 meeting listed below:

1. Between David Boublil, Cabinet member of Pierre Moscovici and ArcelorMittal on the 16th July 2019

2. Between Xavier Coget and Grzegorz Radziejewski, Cabinet members of Jyrki Katainen and ArcelorMittal on the 26th March 2019

3. Between Xavier Coget and Grzegorz Radziejewski, Cabinet members of Jyrki Katainen and ArcelorMittal on the 28th July 2019

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,

Venetia Roxburgh

Dear Madam,

 

Thank you for your e-mail of 27 October 2020. We hereby acknowledge
receipt of your application for access to documents, which was registered
on 27 October 2020.

 

As your request falls under the responsibility of different services, it
has been registered as follows:

 

-          point 1 of your request will be handled under reference number
GESTDEM 2020/6470,

-          points 2 and 3 of your request will be handled under reference
number GESTDEM 2020/6471.

 

You will receive a separate reply for each reference.

 

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 18 November 2020. In case this time limit
needs to be extended, you will be informed in due course.

 

You have lodged your application via 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 Commission.

For further information on your rights, please refer to the third party’s
privacy policy.

 

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.

 

For information on how we process your personal data visit our page
[6]Privacy statement – access to documents.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Ms Roxburgh

I refer to your request for access to documents below received on 27.10 and registered on the same day under GESTDEM 2020/6471.

Could you please confirm that your request concerning point 3 (meeting between Xavier Coget and Grzegorz Radziejewski, Cabinet members of Jyrki Katainen and ArcelorMittal) on 28/07/2019, should actually refer to 18/07/2019? It does not appear, based on the Transparency Register, that any such meeting took place on 28/07/2019.

Thank you in advance for your clarifications.

Kind regards,
Barbara Glowacka
