Dear Madam,

 

Thank you for your e-mail of 7 April 2021. We hereby acknowledge receipt
of your application for access to documents, which was registered on 8
April 2021 under reference numbers

 

- GESTDEM 2021/2139 – SG;

- GESTDEM 2021/2140 – DG CLIMA.

 

Each of above mentioned services will send you a separate reply.

 

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 29 April 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 Climate Action,

Please pass this on to the person who reviews confirmatory applications.

I am filing the following confirmatory application with regards to my access to documents request 'DG CLIMA - minutes of meetings - Energy stakeholders'.

In conformity with Article 7(4) of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 of the European Parliament and of the Council regarding public access to European Parliament, Council and Commission documents (hereafter “the Regulation”), I hereby submits a confirmatory application regarding the Commission's refusal to provide the information I requested on 08 April 2021 under reference number - GESTDEM 2021/2139 – SG; GESTDEM 2021/2140 – DG CLIMA.

After an extension by the Commission of their deadline to respond by 15 working days, DG Clima access to document’s team declared that « due to the extraordinary health and security measures » they cannot fulfil my request, and Sec Gen responded by saying they didn’t held the requested documents, while all the minutes referred to in the requests have been made public on the Commssion’s website, and should have been documented by minutes of meetings. Art. 7(4) of the Regulation therefore entitles us to make a confirmatory application.
We accordingly urge you to disclose the requested information in the shortest time possible.
A full history of my request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.asktheeu.org/en/request/dg_c...
Yours faithfully,
Lala Hakuma Dadci
