Dear Trade,

Thank you for your email. I am happy to assist you in providing more information. The company has been listed in the EU transparency register at https://ec.europa.eu/transparencyregiste... and you can find the names of some of their representatives in this list. Since a complete list of representatives is unavailable, I would like to emphasise that this request should not just cover the people listed in this entry.

The company was founded in 2004, the timeframe should not extend beyond this date.

Please indicate if more information is required.

Yours faithfully,

Mathias Schindler

Dear Mr Schindler,

 

We refer to your access to documents request registered on 22/06/2020
under the above mentioned reference number.

 

Your application is currently being handled. However, the nature of your
application required us to perform a considerable number of searches in
our database in order to gather all necessary documents. Therefore we will
not be in a position to complete the handling of your application within
the time limit of 15 working days, which expires today. However, we would
like to inform you that your file is now at the last stage of the
procedure and has already been submitted for approval.

 

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 4/08/2020.

 

We apologise for this delay and for any inconvenience this may cause.

Yours sincerely,

Access to Documents Team
