Dear Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs,

Please pass this on to the person who reviews confirmatory applications.

I am filing the following confirmatory application with regards to my access to documents request 'Meetings with Huawei'.

I asked for minutes of the meeting between Commissioner Katainen and Huawei's Chairman Hu in April 2018, but merely received correspondence relating to the meeting. I find it hardly credible that no record of such a high-level meeting exists. I kindly ask for an internal review into whether any record of the meeting does survive and can be produced for public scrutiny.

A full history of my request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.asktheeu.org/en/request/meet...

Yours faithfully,

Alexander Fanta

Dear Mr Fanta,

We refer to your e-mail dated 31 January 2019 in which you submitted a
confirmatory application in relation to your earlier, initial request for
access to documents, registered on 10 December 2018 under the above
mentioned reference number.

In your initial application of 10 December 2018, addressed to the
Directorate-General for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and
SMEs, you requested access to:

-           minutes, correspondence and other documents relating to the
meeting of Vice-President Jyrki Katainen with representatives of Huawei
Technologies on May 25, 2018 (emphasis added)

-           minutes, correspondence and other documents relating to the
meeting of Edward Bannerman with representatives of Huawei Technologies on
May 30, 2017

-           minutes, correspondence and other documents relating to the
meeting of Vice-President Jyrki Katainen with representatives of Huawei
Technologies on November 28, 2016

-           minutes, correspondence and other documents relating to the
meeting of Edward Bannerman with representatives of Huawei Technologies on
March 30, 2015’.

Please note that in your initial application, you indicated that you
request documents concerning a meeting between Commissioner Katainen and
Mr Ken Hu in May 2018. In your confirmatory application, however, you
indicate that ‘I asked for minutes of the meeting between Commissioner
Katainen and Huawei’s Chairman Hu in April 2018 […]’ (emphasis added).

We invite you, pursuant to Article 6(2) of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001,
to provide us with a clarification regarding the date (month and year) of
the minutes you request.

In accordance with Article 2, third paragraph of the Implementing Rules to
Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001, the 15 working days time limit for handling
your application will start running when we receive the requested
clarifications.

Dear Mr Fanta,

 

I refer to your email of 31 January 2019, registered on 19 February 2019,
through which you submit a confirmatory application in accordance with
Article 7(2) of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding public access to
European Parliament, Council and Commission documents ('Regulation
1049/2001').

 

Your confirmatory application is currently being handled. Unfortunately,
we have not yet been able to gather all the elements needed to carry out a
full analysis of your request and to take a final decision. Therefore, we
are not in a position to reply to your confirmatory request within the
prescribed time limit expiring on 12 March 2019.

 

Consequently, we have to extend the deadline for handling it by another 15
working days in accordance with Article 8(2) of Regulation 1049/2001. The
new deadline expires on 02 April 2019, however, we expect to be able to
provide you the reply before that date.

 

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

 

Yours sincerely,
