Dear European Police Office,

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:

- All documentation (including but not limited to: general communications of any nature, written material of any kind, email correspondences, attendance lists, agendas, background papers, briefing papers, transcriptions of meetings, any written material whatsoever) containing references to the 'PhotoDNA' software.

This request extends to any information that Europol holds in relation to any of the above points, including information that may have been deemed short-lived or unimportant.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Mr. Stolton,

Thank you very much for your interest in Europol.

Please note that at this stage, we cannot accept your request due to it being too broad to allow a reasonable identification of documents and its lack of specificity. In line with Article 3(3) of the Management Board Decision on Public Access to Europol Documents, herewith attached for your convenience, we would kindly invite you to provide additional information making it possible to identify the documents requested.

We would ask you to further specify and narrow the scope of your request, e.g. by using dates, time periods, purpose, etc., as well as providing an indication of what you are looking for, which may allow us to assist you further. If there is any specific question you have and which you are hoping the documents would answer, we would appreciate your feedback because it would assist us in being able to identify the documents of relevance to you. Although this additional information would not impact on the assessment of any identified documents as such, it would however expedite the process and help us to provide you with an answer in a timely manner.

Best regards
G2-01 Corporate Law
