Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Permanent Representation of Portugal to the EU should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Permanent Representation of Portugal to the EU,

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 correspondence (letters, emails, etc) and minutes of meetings (or any other reports of such meetings) where the EU criteria for the identification of endocrine disrupting chemicals (more info to be found here: ) were discussed between officials of the Permanent Representation of Portugal to the EU and representatives of (one or more of) the following companies/organizations:

-Dow Chemical
-DowDuPont (after merger)
