Dear The Innovation and Networks Executive Agency,

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:

A list of all the participants in these meetings as well as the invitation list
Transcriptions of all the discussions in the meetings
Recordings in the case of online calls

The list should include: date, individuals attending and organisational affiliation, as well as the issues discussed;

- all minutes and other reports of these meetings and/or calls;

- all documents prepared for the purpose of the meetings issued both in preparation and after the meetings took place.
- all correspondence, including attachments (i.e. any emails, mail correspondence or telephone call notes) between the Directorate-General for Energy, including any Cabinet Members and/or officials, and any lobby group and/or industry representative discussing “Rio Tinto” and/or “Jadar Project” and/or “Lithium”.

To the extent possible, I prefer the documents in electronic format.
Should my request be denied wholly or partially, I kindly request to explain the denial or all redactions referring to specific exemptions in the regulation. Also I would expect the partial release of documents, in case of partial exemption according to article 4.6.

Dear Sir,

 

We refer to your application for access to documents received by e-mail on
17 December 2021 and registered on the same day under reference number
CINEA 2021/26.

 

You request access to:

"Documents and transcripts for the meetings happened between Rio Tinto and
the Commission Representatives Maroš Šefčovič and Adam Romanowski held on
the 08/07/2021 and on the 25/10/2021.

 

A list of all the participants in these meetings as well as the invitation
list

Transcriptions of all the discussions in the meetings

Recordings in the case of online calls

 

The list should include: date, individuals attending and organisational
affiliation, as well as the issues discussed;

- all minutes and other reports of these meetings and/or calls;

- all documents prepared for the purpose of the meetings issued both in
preparation and after the meetings took place.

- all correspondence, including attachments (i.e. any emails, mail
correspondence or telephone call notes) between the Directorate-General
for Energy, including any Cabinet Members and/or officials, and any lobby
group and/or industry representative discussing  “Rio Tinto” and/or “Jadar
Project” and/or “Lithium”."

 

We regret to inform you that CINEA does not hold any documents that would
correspond to the description given in your application, as CINEA has not
participated in these meetings and does not hold any document related to
these meetings.

 

As specified in Article 2(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001, the right of
access as defined in that regulation applies only to existing documents in
the possession of the institution.

Given that no such documents, corresponding to the description given in
your application, are held by CINEA, we are not in a position to fulfil
your request.

 

You have lodged your application via a private third-party website, which
has no link with any institution of the European Union. Therefore, CINEA
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 CINEA. 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 CINEA on
that website. This includes the personal data that you may have
communicated to CINEA (e.g. your private postal address).

 

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

 

If you do not wish that your correspondence with CINEA 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, CINEA 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 CINEA.

 

In accordance with Article 7(2) of Regulation 1049/2001, you are entitled
to make a confirmatory application as regards your request for access to
documents requesting the Agency to review this position.

Such a confirmatory application should be addressed within 15 working days
upon receipt of this letter to the Director of CINEA at the following
address:

CINEA

Chaussée de Wavre 910

B-1049 Bruxelles

or by email to: [5][email address]   

 

We would also kindly ask you could confirm receipt of the present e-mail
by replying to [6][email address]  

Best regards,

CINEA ACCESS TO DOCUMENTS
