Your application for access to documents – Ref GestDem No
Dear Mr. Merino,
We refer to your e-mail dated 17 March 2019 in which you make a request for access to
documents, registered on 20 March 2019 under the above-mentioned reference number.
In your application, you are asking access to “A list of all lobby meetings held by the
Commissioner in charge of Mobility and Transport, Violeta Bulc, or any other member
of its Cabinet with any organisations representing churches and/or religious
communities since 2014 onwards, including all emails, minutes, reports or any other
briefing papers related to all those meetings”.
I would like to point out that Commissioner Bulc took her functions on 1st November
2014. Therefore, the search was carried out since this date.
We regret to inform you that the Commission does not hold any documents that would
correspond to the description given in your application and, therefore it is not in a position
to handle your request.
As specified in Article 2(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001, the right of access as
defined in that regulation applies only to existing documents in the possession of the
Commission européenne/Europese Commissie, 1049 Bruxelles/Brussel, BELGIQUE/BELGIË - Tel. +32 22991111
Office: DM28 08/101 ‐ Tel. direct line +32 229 88764
Given that no such documents, corresponding to the description given in your
application, are held by Commissioner Bulc or any other member of her Cabinet, I am not
in a position to fulfil your request.
In accordance with Article 7(2) of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001, you are entitled to make
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 address:
or by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Electronically signed on 24/04/2019 14:52 (UTC+02) in accordance with article 4.2 (Validity of electronic documents) of Commission Decision 2004/563
