Dear  Madam,

 

Thank you for your  e-mail  of 3 December 2021. We hereby acknowledge
receipt of your application for access to documents, which has been
reattributed to DG ENVIRONMENT from DG CLIMA. Your request was registered
on 10 December 2021 under reference number GESTDEM 2021/8042.

European Parliament, Council and Commission documents, your application
will be handled within 15 working days. The time limit will expire on 11
January 2022. In case this time limit needs to be extended, you will be
informed in due course.

 

You have lodged your application via a private third-party 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.

 

Please note that the private third party running the AsktheEU.org website
is responsible and accountable for the processing of your personal data
via that website, and not the Commission. For further information on your
rights, please refer to the third party’s privacy policy.

publishes the content of applicants’ correspondence with the Commission on
that website. This includes the personal data that you may have
communicated to the Commission (e.g. your private postal address).

 

Similarly, the third party publishes on that website any reply that the
Commission will send to the email address of the applicants generated by
the AsktheEU.org website.

 

If you do not wish that your correspondence with the Commission is
published on a private third-party website such as AsktheEU.org, you can
provide us with an alternative, private e-mail address for further
correspondence.  In that case, the Commission will send all future
electronic correspondence addressed to you only to that private address,
and it will use only that private address to reply to your request. You
should still remain responsible to inform the private third-party website
about this change of how you wish to communicate with, and receive a reply
from, the Commission.

Holding reply - Ares(2022)173795  (Please use this link only if you are an

Dear Ms Sánchez Nicolás

 

I refer to your e-mail of 3 December 2021 whereby you made a request for
access to documents under Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001, registered under
the reference GESTDEM 2021/8042.

By e-mail dated 15 December 2021 (ref. Ares (2021)7755019), you were
informed by the Secretariat General of the Commission that your request
has been split in two:

 

a) GESTDEM reference 2021/8054, attributed to DG MARE, on the first three
requests of your e-mail

b) GESTDEM reference 2021/8042, attributed to DG ENV, on the fourth
request of your e-mail.

 

You received the reply to your fourth request (GESTDEM reference number
2021/8042) on 10 January  under reference number Ares(2022)144579.

 

Please note that as regards GESTDEM 2021/8054, DG ENV has now taken over
responsibility for the reply to these first three requests of your e-mail.

 

Your application is currently being handled. However, we are not in a
position to complete its handling within the time limit of 15 working
days, which expires on 11 January 2022. An extended time limit is needed
as the application concerns documents held by different services, which
must be consulted.

 

Therefore, we have to extend the time limit with 15 working days in
accordance with Article 7(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding
public access to documents. The new time limit expires on 1 February 2022.

We apologise for this delay and for any inconvenience this may cause.

 

Best regards
