Dear Health and Food Safety,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

— Documentation of meetings (minutes, drafts, memoranda, invitations, cancellations, etc.) involving any person or institution representing the Spanish Government, in particular the Ministry of Agriculture, but not excluding Autonomous Communities and municipalities, and which is linked to the use of pesticides since January 2018.

— Correspondence (guidance documents, reports, official letters, emails, attachments, etc.) exchanged with any person or institution representing the Spanish Government, in particular the Ministry of Agriculture, but not excluding Autonomous Communities and municipalities, and which is linked to the use of pesticides since January 2018.

I would like to clarify that I refer to any meeting in which representatives of the Spanish Government participated, either exclusively or with more people. On the level of government representation, you can limit the search to representatives of the national government only (including, therefore, ministries).

This request is linked to request 8611 (https://www.asktheeu.org/en/alaveteli_pr...), where you already identified around 50 documents falling under the mentioned scope.

Yours faithfully,

Álvaro Merino.

Dear Mr Merino,

 

Thank you for your e-mail of 8 January 2021. We hereby acknowledge receipt
of your application for access to documents, which was registered on 11
January 2021, after receiving confirmation of your postal address, under
reference number GESTDEM 2021/0125.

 

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 1
February 2021. 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.

 

We understand that the third party running the AsktheEU.org website
usually 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.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Mr Merino,

 

We refer to your request dated 8 January 2021 in which you make a request
for access to documents, registered on 11 January 2021 under the above
mentioned reference number.

 

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 on 1 February 2021.

 

An extended time limit is needed as the documents requested originate from
third parties which have been 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 22 February
2020.

 

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

 

Yours faithfully,
