Stakeholder comments re services notifications

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear DG Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs (GROW),

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 comments provided to the Commission by stakeholders concerning incoming notifications regarding services, since July 1st 2020.

The background for this request is as follows: in 2019 the Commission started publishing incoming notifications regarding services (on its website https://ec.europa.eu/internal_market/imi...), inviting stakeholders to provide comments on these notifications. Following previous FOI requests submitted in March and July this year, a number of such comments were released to us. These gave us important insights into the functioning of the Commission's new mechanism around services notifications. We are now requesting access to comments that were received since July 1st 2020.

Yours faithfully,

Olivier Hoedeman
on behalf of Corporate Europe Observatory (CEO)
