13 February 2020 RE: Access to Documents
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.
