Dear Agriculture and Rural Development,
Under the right of access to documents in the EU Treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I hereby request access to the following:
All documents—including but not limited to correspondence (including email and letters) containing substantive discussion relevant to the meeting topic, attendance lists, agendas, background papers, transcripts, recordings, minutes, notes, and meeting conclusions—relating to the meetings listed below:
1. Video conference between Fédération Européenne des Fabricants d'Aliments Composés (FEFAC) and Jorge Pinto Antunes and Catherine GeslainLanéelle, Cabinet members of Janusz Wojciechowski Agriculture on 22/04/2020 to discuss responsible sourcing of commodities aimed at avoiding deforestation or other adverse environmental and climate change impacts;

I prefer you produce the documents on a rolling basis. At no point should the Commission’s search for—or deliberations concerning—certain documents delay the production of others that the Commission has already retrieved and elected to produce.

Should my request be denied wholly or partially, please explain the denial or all deletions referring to specific exemptions in the regulation. Also, I expect the partial release of documents, in case of partial exemption according to article 4.6.
Please confirm having received this application. Please do not hesitate to get back in touch with me should you need any further information to facilitate your research.
Thank you for your assistance.
Lynn Pasterny – Earthsight
