Dear Secretariat General of the European Commission,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I would like to request a list of all lobby meetings held by the Secretariat General since December 2015 where the Commission’s proposed Plastics Strategy was discussed.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Ms. Cann,

 

Thanks for your reply and cooperation. We will take 26/1/17 as reference
point for the SG requests.

 

As regards DG Environment, it may indeed be better you get  directly in
touch with them. My colleague Catherine in copy will contact you.

 

Best regards,

 

Veronica

Dear Secretariat-General,

Thank you for the email.

Firstly, could I please ask you to communicate via the Ask the EU website
regarding these requests. That ensures maximum transparency and also
clarity about which requests are being discussed.

Regarding 2017/7539 and 2017/7537 which were directed to the Secretariat
General, I would be happy with the starting point of 26 January 2017. I
would be pleased to receive the documents as quickly as possible.

I think these 2 requests are already quite targetted. 7537 asks for the
minutes of meetings with just 5 organisations. 7539 simply asks for a list
of lobby meetings held on the plastics strategy. I note that DG Fisma
keeps a clear record of all of its lobby meetings (no matter which
official attended) and that helps it to ensure that it can answer similar
requests efficiently. Perhaps the Secretariat-General could help to ensure
that all other DGs follow such good practice, if they do not already do
so.

Regarding 2018/163 and 2018/165, these were directed to DG Environment
where I expect the quantity of the documents requested would be greater.
Perhaps it could get in touch directly with me so that we can find an
appropriate way forward?

I look forward to receiving your confirmation on all of the points above.
Thank you in advance.

Yours faithfully,

Vicky Cann
