Dear Joint Research Centre,
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:
For the period between 1 January 2018 to date:
- a list of the meeting and/or calls between Solvay SA and the Joint Research Centre, including any Cabinet Members and/or officials, during which “electric vehicles ” and/or “batteries” were discussed.
The list should include: date, individuals attending and organisational affiliation, as well as the issues discussed;
- all minutes and other reports of these meetings and/or calls;
- all documents prepared for the purpose of the meetings issued both in preparation and after the meetings took place.
- all correspondence, including attachments (i.e. any emails, mail correspondence or telephone call notes) between the Joint Research Centre and Solvay SA, including any Cabinet Members and/or officials, and any lobby group and/or industry representative discussing “electric vehicles ” and/or “batteries”.
To the extent possible, I prefer the documents in electronic format.
Should my request be denied wholly or partially, I kindly request to explain the denial or all redactions referring to specific exemptions in the regulation. Also I would expect the partial release of documents, in case of partial exemption according to article 4.6.
Please confirm receipt of this application. I look forward to receiving your reply within 15 business days, as established by the regulation.
