Dear Mr Hoedeman,
We refer to your e-mail dated 27/01/2016 in which you make a request for
access to documents, registered on 27/01/2016 under the above mentioned
Your application is currently being handled. However, we will not be in a
position to complete the handling of your application within the time
limit of 15 working days, which expires today (17/02/2016).
An extended time limit is needed because your application concerns a high
number of documents and the search is still ongoing.

accordance with Article 7(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding
public access to documents. The new time limit expires on 09/03/2015.
