Dear Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs,

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:

- a list of all meetings in the last year regarding the ongoing
review of legislation to reduce CO2 emissions from passenger cars

- all correspondence and minutes of meetings between DG GROW and
ACEA or members of ACEA in the last year regarding the ongoing review of legislation to reduce CO2 emissions from passenger cars

Please ensure that documents are made available as soon as they are
found rather than waiting to package them all together.

Yours faithfully,

Pascoe Sabido,

Likewise, the reply covers both meetings with ACEA as an organisation, and
