Dear European Data Protection Board,

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:

Any expert report, legal opinion, evaluation matrix, checklist or other document, of any origin, regardless of its finalization (draft or final), that is available to the Board and that addresses the issue of third country (non-EU/EEA) compliance with the 'European Essential Guarantees', as described in Working Paper 237 and most recently in Recommendations 02/2020.
This request relates in particular to
- the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland,
- the United States of America,
- the People's Republic of China,
- the Federal Republic of India,
and any other third country for which documents of the above type are already available.

Documents already disclosed in the request of November 13, 2020 under reference 2020/37 do not need to be provided again.

Yours faithfully,
