ACCESS TO DOCUMENTS, Agencia Europea de Defensa

Dear Sir,

 

We refer to your email dated 14/10/2020, wherein you submit a request for
access to documents, registered under the reference 2020/19/IN.

 

We further refer to our request for clarification dated 15/10/2020 and
your response received on that same day.

 

We also refer to our email of 05/11/2020, by which we informed you that
the initial deadline needed to be extended until 27/11/2020.

 

In your request you seek access to “documents which relate to any article
16, article 12B and article 40 (staff regulations) applications made by
Jorge Domecq, former Chief Executive at the European Defence Agency. In
particular, I request a note of all Mr. Domecq job titles at the EDA
including dates held; copies of any application(s) that he has made under
article 12b, 16 and 40 to undertake a new professional activity; and all
documents (correspondence, emails, meeting notes etc) related to the
authorisation of the new role or roles.”

 

As clarified on 15/10/2020, the articles corresponding to those mentioned
in your application under the EDA Staff Regulations (SRs) are as follows:

 

Art. 16 – Art. 18 of EDA SRs;

 

Art. 12b – Art. 15 of EDA SRs

 

Art.40  – Art. 57 of EDA SRs.

 

 1. With regard to your request for access to documents which relate to
any applications made by Mr Jorge Domecq, EDA former Chief Executive
under Article 15

 

We regret to inform you that EDA does not hold any documents corresponding
to the description given in your request.

 

 2. With regard to your request for access to documents which relate to
any applications made by Mr Jorge Domecq, EDA former Chief Executive
under Article 57

 

We regret to inform you that EDA does not hold any documents corresponding
to the description given in your request.

 

 3. With regard to your request for access to documents which relate to
any applications made by Mr Jorge Domecq, EDA former Chief Executive
under Article 18

 

We have identified documents falling under the scope of your request. We
are pleased to inform you that partial access can be granted. A full
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 personal data. 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 put forward any arguments to
establish the necessity to have the data transmitted for a specific
purpose in the public interest. Consequently, we have concluded 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. The exception under Article
4(1)(b) is absolute in nature and therefore, not balanced by an overriding
public interest in disclosure. Thus, the personal data in the documents
have been redacted.

 

Means of redress

 

In accordance with Article 7(2) of Regulation 1049/2001, you are entitled
to make a confirmatory application requesting EDA to review its position.

Such a confirmatory application should be addressed within 15 working days
upon receipt of this letter to the Chief Executive of EDA to the following
email: [1][EDA request email]

 

Yours sincerely,

 

European Defence Agency
