Dear Mr Teffer,

 

Thank you for your e-mail dated 02/11/2018. We hereby acknowledge receipt
of your application for access to documents, which was registered on
26/11/2018 under reference number GestDem 2018/6249.

 

In accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding public access to
European Parliament, Council and Commission documents, your application
will be handled within 15 working days. The time limit will expire on
17/12/2018. In case this time limit needs to be extended, you will be
informed in due course.

 

You have lodged your application via the AsktheEU.org website. Please note
that this is a private third-party website which has no link with any
institution of the European Union. Therefore, the European Commission
cannot be held accountable for any technical issues or problems linked to
the use of this system.

 

Please note that the private third party running the AsktheEU.org website
is responsible and accountable for the processing of your personal data
via that website, and not the European Commission. For further information
on your rights, please refer to the third party’s privacy policy.

 

We understand that the third party running that website usually publishes
the content of applicants’ correspondence with the European Commission on
that website. This includes the personal data that you may have
communicated to the European Commission (e.g. your private postal
address).

 

Similarly, the third party publishes on that website any reply that the
Commission will send to the email address of the applicants generated by
the AsktheEU.org website.

 

If you do not wish your correspondence with the European Commission to be
published on the AsktheEU.org website, you can provide us with an
alternative, private e-mail address for further correspondence. In that
case, the European Commission will send all future electronic
correspondence addressed to you only to that private address.

 

 

Yours sincerely,

Dear Mr Teffer,

We refer to your e-mail dated 02/11/2018 in which you make a request for
access to documents, registered on 26/11/2018 under the above mentioned
reference number.

Your application is 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 expired yesterday,  17/12/2018. 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 17/01/2019.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Mr Teffer,

 

please find enclosed a reply letter concerning your access to documents
request GestDem 2018/6249.

 

As foreseen by Article 297 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the
European Union (TFEU), decisions which specify to whom they are addressed,
shall be notified to those to whom they are addressed and shall take
effect upon such notification. Replies triggering the possibility for
administrative or judicial redress are therefore transmitted via
registered mail with acknowledgement of receipt.

 

In order to obtain legal certainty as regards the date of receipt of the
reply by the applicant under Regulation 1049/2001,  the following
categories of replies are normally sent via registered mail:

 

- Negative reply

- Partially negative reply

- Devoid of purpose reply (=no documents found)

- Reply containing documents from which personal data has been redacted

 

The letter would normally be sent to you via registered mail. However, in
connection with a previous access to documents request you requested to
receive only a digital copy of such replies.

 

Thus we consider that the period of fifteen working days for making a
confirmatory request starts to run from 27 December (the first working day
after the reply e-mail is sent). Please don't hesitate to let us know if
this information is no longer valid and you would like to receive the
letter via registered mail.

 

Best regards,
