Your application for access to documents – GESTDEM 2021/5874
Dear Ms Verheecke,
We refer to your e-mail of 4 October 2021 in which you make a request for
access to documents, registered on the same day under the above-mentioned reference
You request access to: “All documentation (including but not limited to all email
correspondence, attendance lists, agendas, background papers, transcripts,
recordings and minutes/notes) relating to the meeting between Agnieszka
Skonieczna and Fédération bancaire française on 19th July
We have identified the enclosed documents falling within the scope of your request.
With regard to the above mentioned documents, a complete disclosure of the
identified documents is prevented by the exception concerning the protection of
privacy and the integrity of the individual outlined in Article 4(1)(b) of Regulation (EC)
No 1049/2001, because they contain the following personal data:
-the names/initials and contact information of Commission staff members not pertaining
to the senior management;
-the names/initials and contact details of other natural persons
Article 9(1)(b) of the Data Protection Regulation does not allow the transmission of these
personal data, except if you prove that it is necessary to have the data transmitted to you
for a specific purpose in the public interest and where there is no reason to assume that
the legitimate interests of the data subject might be prejudiced. In your request,
you do not express any particular interest to have access to these personal data

Office: BREY 08/083
nor do you put forward any arguments to establish the necessity to have the data
transmitted for a specific purpose in the public interest.
Consequently, I conclude that, pursuant to Article 4(1)(b) of Regulation (EC) No
1049/2001, access cannot be granted to the personal data contained in the
requested documents, as the need to obtain access thereto for a purpose in the
public interest has not been substantiated and there is no reason to think that the
legitimate interests of the individuals concerned would not be prejudiced by
disclosure of the personal data concerned.
Please note also that some parts of one of the documents are out of scope and
consequently have been blanked out.
You may reuse public documents, which have been produced by the
European Commission or by public and private entities on its behalf based on the
Commission Decision on the reuse of Commission documents. You may reuse the
document disclosed free of charge and for non-commercial and commercial purposes
provided that the source is acknowledged and that you do not distort the original
meaning or message of the document.
Please note that the Commission does not assume liability stemming from the reuse.
In case you would disagree with this position, you are entitled, in accordance with Article
7(2) of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001, to submit a confirmatory application requesting
the Commission to review this position.
Such a confirmatory application should be addressed within 15 working days upon
receipt of this letter to the Secretariat-General of the Commission at the following
