Dear DG Health and Food Safety,

In response to my application for access to documents Ref GestDem No 2019/7290, we discussed a fair solution in accordance with Article 6(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 and agreed to narrow down the scope to the following:
-identification of the documents falling under your request;
-retrieval and establishment of a complete list of the documents identified.

This approach would allow me to submit follow-up requests for specific documents.

In February this year, you sent me (SANTE.DDG1.B.2/SLO/kms(2020)1089593) a list detailing the titles of the 178 identified documents, their date and the names of organisations, which sent or received the documents.

I would now like to submit a follow-up request for the following specific documents.
