Dear Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators,
Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am hereby requesting access to the travel expenses of ACER's Director, for the period 1 January 2017 to 31 December 2018 inclusive.
I am looking for documents that contain, for each of the trips, the following information:
- Place of origin and destination, and the amount spent on travel or transportation;
- Exact dates and duration of the trip;
- Amount spent on accommodation;
- Amount spent on subsistence;
- Other information, such as possible miscellaneous costs.
If the travel was by air taxi and a team of people were travelling, please also provide documents with details on the other travellers (at a minimum, names and job titles).
With respect to personal information contained in any documents that you might have, please note that the only information being sought here is the name of ACER's Director, something which is already in the public domain. This request does not seek access to any other personal information such as bank account details. Nor am I requesting data such as the office addresses, signatures or telephone numbers of ACER staff members.
I remain at your disposition to answer any questions or clarifications you might have related to this request.
Thank you in advance.

Dear Ms Martínez,
I follow up on your request for access to document of the past 30 January 2020 in which you sought “documents that contain, for each of the trips, the following information: Place of origin and destination, and the amount spent on travel or transportation; Exact dates and duration of the trip; Amount spent on accommodation; Amount spent on subsistence; Other information, such as possible miscellaneous costs”.
We regret to inform you that no documents were found that would correspond to the description given in your application.
Indeed, as specified in Article 2(3) of Regulation 1049/2001, the right of access as defined in that regulation applies only to existing documents in the possession of the institution.
Given that no such documents have been identified, the Agency is not in a position to handle your request.
Your request has therefore been treated under the umbrella of access to information. In this regard, please find attached an excel sheet reporting the requested information.
