13 February 2020 RE: Access to Documents
Dear sirs,
Referring to Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 on public access to EU documents and to the 'Aarhus Regulation' (see note), I would herewith like to ask for access to the minutes of the following meetings:

• 09/03/20 between Kurt Vandenberghe and Liquid Gas Europe and European LPG Association on LPG and renewable LPG in the European Green Deal
• 02/03/20 between Kurt Vandenberghe and BusinessEurope on policy makers/business dialogue concerning the green deal
• 30/01/20 between Kurt Vandenberghe and Climate-KIC on the implementation of the EGD
• 10/12/19 between Anthony Whelan and the ERT on Green deal and digital strategy, single market, R&D&I, data, 5G

To the extent possible, we prefer the documents in electronic format. Documents that cannot be sent in electronic format should be sent to Corporate Europe Observatory, Rue d’Edimbourg 26, 1050 Brussels.
Should my request be denied wholly or partially, please explain the denial or all deletions referring to specific exemptions in the regulation. Also I expect the partial release of documents, in case of partial exemption according to article 4.6.
I reserve the right to appeal.

Please confirm having received this application. I look forward to your reply within 15 business days, according to the regulation.

Thank you for your assistance.

Dear Madam,

Thank you for your e-mail dated 13/02/2020. We hereby acknowledge receipt
of your application for access to documents, which was registered on
14/02/2020 under reference number GestDem 2020/875.

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 06/03/2020. In case this time limit needs to
be extended, you will be informed in due course.

You have lodged your application via the AsktheEU.org website. Please note
that this is a private third-party website which has no link with any
institution of the European Union. Therefore, the European Commission

We understand that the third party running that website usually publishes
the content of applicants’ correspondence with the European Commission on

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 your correspondence with the European Commission to be
published on the AsktheEU.org website, you can provide us with an
alternative, private e-mail address for further correspondence.

In that case, the European Commission will send all future electronic
correspondence addressed to you only to that private address.

Dear Ms Balanya,

 

I refer to your request from 13/02/2020 in which you make a request for
access to documents under the above mentioned reference

number.

Your application is currently being handled. However, we will not be in a
position to

complete the handling of your application within the time limit of 15
working days, which

An extended time limit is needed as the handling of your application could

I apologise for any inconvenience this delay may cause.
