Dear Mr Diels

We refer to your e-mail, dated 30/01/2020, in which you make a request for
access to documents pursuant to Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 of the
European Parliament and of the Council of 30 May 2001 regarding public
access to European Parliament, Council and Commission documents
(hereinafter ‘Regulation 1049/2001’), registered on the same date under
the above-mentioned reference number. 

Your application reads as follows:

‘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 concerning regulatory cooperation between the EU and
the US on standardization and regulation of RFID technology and electronic
health record systems (since January 2003):

 

1) minutes and other reports of meetings between European Commission
officials and/or representatives (including the Commissioner and the
Cabinet) with their United States counterparts on standardization and
regulation of RFID technology and electronic health record systems (since
January 2003).

 

2) all correspondence (including emails, letters) of European Commission
officials and/or representatives (including the Commissioner and the
Cabinet) with their United States counterparts on standardization and
regulation of RFID technology and electronic health record systems (since
January 2003).

 

3) minutes and other reports of meetings between European Commission
officials and/or representatives (including the Commissioner and the
Cabinet) and representatives of companies and business associations on
standardization and regulation of RFID technology and electronic health
record systems (since January 2003).’

The description given in your application does not enable us to identify
specific documents corresponding to your request. We therefore invite you,
pursuant to Article 6(2) of Regulation 1049/2001 regarding public access
to documents, to clarify the relation of ‘RFID technology’ and ‘electronic
health record systems’. Could you please clarify if the request relates to
RFID technology in so far as it is relevant for electronic health record
systems, or if it concerns regulatory cooperation of the EU and US for
RFID and to regulatory cooperation of the EU and US for electronic health
record systems.

We kindly ask you to reply by email to:
[6][email address]

In accordance with Article 2, third paragraph of the Implementing Rules to
Regulation 1049/2001, the 15 working days time limit for handling your
application will start running when we receive the requested
clarifications.

 Thank you in advance for your understanding. 

 Yours faithfully,

 DG CONNECT ACCESS TO DOCUMENTS Team
