Dear Mr Vranken,

We refer to your e-mails dated 15/11/2017 in which you make a request for
access to documents, registered on 21/11/2017 under the above mentioned
reference numbers.

Your applications are currently being handled. However, we will not be in
a position to complete the handling of your application within the time
limit of 15 working days, which expires on 12/12/2017.

An extended time limit is needed as your applications concern a large
number of documents and large files have to be examined.

Therefore, we have to extend the time limit with 15 working days in
accordance with Article 7(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding
public access to documents. The new time limit expires on 11/01/2018.

We apologise for this delay and for any inconvenience this may cause.

Yours sincerely,
