Estamos a la espera de que Access Now lea una respuesta reciente y de que actualice el estado.

Dear Directorate General for Trade,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain information related to the background paper entitled “A Digital Trade Initiative in the WTO”, including:

- the original background paper as sent to the Council;
- all drafts and documents related to the background paper;
- the draft as well as actual agenda and minutes from internal and external meetings where the background paper was discussed;
- notes from DG Trade and others EU Commission’s DGs on the background paper;
- the exchange of e-mails between the industry and/or industry associations and the Commission on the background paper;
- the exchange of e-mails between external experts and the Commission on the background paper;
- the exchange of e-mails between foreign state representatives and the Commission on the background paper;

Yours faithfully,

Dear Ms Masse,

 

Thank you for your email dated 10/05/2016.  We hereby acknowledge receipt
of your application for access to documents, which was registered today
under reference number GestDem 2016/2682.

 

In accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding public access to
European Parliament, Council and Commission documents, your application
will be handled within 15 working days. The time limit will expire on
06/06/2016. In case this time limit needs to be extended, you will be
informed in due course. You have lodged your application via the
AsktheEU.org website. Please note that this is a private website which has
no link with any institution of the European Union. Therefore the European
Commission cannot be held accountable for any technical issues or problems
linked to the use of this system.

 

However, your application seems to be wide scope and it potentially
concerns a very large number of documents, which need to be assessed
individually. We will also need to contact related services and possibly
third parties. Such a workload cannot be carried out within the normal
time limits (15+15 working days) set out in Article 7 of Regulation
1049/2001. The Regulation provides for a possibility to confer with
applicants in order to find a fair solution when an application relates to
a very long document or concerns a very large number of documents (Article
6(3)).

 

Based on the above-mentioned provisions, we would kindly ask you to
specify the objective of your request and your specific interest in the
documents requested, and whether you could narrow down the scope of your
request and indicate a timeframe covered, so as to reduce it to a more
manageable amount of documents.

 

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

 

Best regards,

DG TRADE
