Dear Mobility and Transport,

Thank you very much for your reply. In order to facilitate the delivery of the above mentioned documents within the legal time-frame, I am ready to reduce the scope of my request. I hereby kindly ask you to provide me with the following:

-Minutes of all meetings between DG MOVE and the European Road Transport Research Advisory Council (ERTRAC). This should include any meetings with ERTRAC directly or any of its members, like Hidria. The time period should be 1st January 2015 until today.
- Any correspondence between DG MOVE and ERTRAC, or any of its members, like Hidria. This should include but not be limited to correspondence related to the aforementioned meetings, as well as all other email and letter exchanges. It should also include all attachments and accompanying documents contained within the correspondence.

- Minutes of all meetings between DG MOVE and the European association for forwarding, transport, logistic and Customs services (CLECAT). This should include any meetings with CLECAT directly or any of its members. The time period should be 1st January 2017 until today.
- Any correspondence between DG MOVE and CLECAT, or any of its members. This should include but not be limited to correspondence related to the aforementioned meetings, as well as all other email and letter exchanges. It should also include all attachments and accompanying documents contained within the correspondence.

- Minutes of all meetings between DG MOVE and the International Road Transport Union Permanent Delegation to the EU (IRU). This should include any meetings with IRU directly or any of its members. The time period should be 1st January 2017 until today.
- Any correspondence between DG MOVE and IRU, or any of its members. This should include but not be limited to correspondence related to the aforementioned meetings, as well as all other email and letter exchanges. It should also include all attachments and accompanying documents contained within the correspondence.

As you will notice, I dropped my requests for the documents pertaining to the meetings with the ETF, and reduced the timeline by two years for the documents related to the meetings with IRU and CLECAT. My request regarding DG Move and ERTRAC remains unchanged.

I hope this amended request will be more manageable. As per your question regarding my specific objective and interest for these documents, I will refer to article 6 (1) of Regulation 1049/2001, which states that "The applicant is not obliged to state reasons for the application."

Thank you very much for your help.

Yours faithfully,

Bryan Carter

Dear Mobility and Transport,

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 ERTRAC'.

In my request, I specifically wrote that I wanted the minutes and all the documents related to the meetings between DG move and ERTRAC or any of its members, like Hidria.

I barely received any of those documents.

The commission Violeta Bulc, or members of her staff, met with Hidria on 17/11/18, 26/10/18, 19/04/17 and 27/05/16. According to her twitter feed, she also visited a Hidria factory on 02/07/18.

Can I please receive, as requested, the minutes and documents related to these meetings.

Thank you very much

Yours faithfully,

Bryan Carter
