Dear Madam, Sir,

I refer to GestDem 2018/2188.

The letter from Mrs Lowri Evans stated that I would be granted access to documents 1, 6, 9, 11, 17, 19, 20, 24, 26, 27, 30, 31, 35, 37, 39 and 41. I have not received any documents apart from the letter. I assume that this is a technical error, and would like to ask that you (re)send those documents.

As for the non-disclosed documents related to the As-If Programme Committee for Defence Research, I would like to file a confirmatory application.

I don't believe that the Commission was right to deny access to those documents. For one, the public has a right to know how EU money is being spent. Moreover, the Commission itself has said in the draft terms of reference of the As-If programme Committee for Defence Research: “DG GROW shall make available all relevant documents, including the agendas, the minutes and the participants' submissions, either on the register of expert groups or via a link from the register to a dedicated website, where this information can be found”.

All the best,
Peter Teffer

Dear Mr Teffer,

 

I refer to your e-mail of 14 August 2018, registered on 17 August 2018, by
which you submit a confirmatory application in accordance with Article
7(2) of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding public access to European
Parliament, Council and Commission documents.

 

Your confirmatory application is currently being handled. Unfortunately,
we have not yet been able to gather all the elements we need to carry out
a full analysis of your request in order to take a final decision and,
therefore, we are not in a position to reply to your confirmatory request

Consequently, we have to extend this period by another 15 working days in
accordance with Article 8(2) of Regulation 1049/2001. The new deadline
expires on 28 September 2018.

 

Yours sincerely,
