Documents regarding endocrine disrupters

La solicitud fue exitosa.

Dear Secretariat General (SG),

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:

– on the topic of endocrine disrupters (also spelled: disruptors), all correspondence (including emails), the list of meetings with detailed minutes and any other reports of such meetings between the Chief Scientific Adviser of the European Commission (and her representatives) and the following organisations and/or individuals:
-The President of the European Commission José Manuel Barroso (and his representatives)
-European Policy Centre (EPC)
-European Risk Forum (ERF)
-Plastics Europe
-Julie Girling
-Ragnar Löfstedt
-Mark Walport
-Ian Boyd
-UK Governement
-The German Bundesinstitut für Risikobewertung (BfR)

(between April 2011 and July 2013).

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.

Do not hesitate to get back to me should you need any further information which could facilitate your research.

Thank you for your assistance.

Yours faithfully,

Stéphane Horel

Dear Secretariat General (SG),
Dear Mrs Glover,
Dear Mrs Speer,

Thank you for your reply and the documents you sent.

I have one question for you. The 17 June email (Annex 2 to reply Horel 30 Aug2013.pdf) contained three attachments. In the second one (Commentary - UK views on the issue of whether or not a threshold can be determined for endocrine disruptors identified as Substances of Very High Concern under REACH), one paragraph is blackened (bottom of 4th page). Would you be so kind as to tell me whether it was so in the original attached document, or whether your services blackened it? If it is the second option, could you please give me the reason?

Thank you for your help.
Yours faithfully,

Stéphane Horel

Dear Ms Horel,
I checked the issue, as we certainly have not blackened anything.
I send you enclosed the original mail as we received it from Professor Dekant.
As you will see, in the original pdf this paragraph has a red background. Probably when merging the attachments into one pdf for sending them to you the software blackened it for some technical reason. Apologies for this.
With best wishes

Dear Secretariat General (SG),
Dear Mr Müller,

Thank you very much for taking the time to make this useful clarification! Indeed the paragraph highlighted in red became black in the scanner.

Before I close this access to document request, I would like to ask you whether Mrs Glover received any reply to her 20 June note to Karl Falkenberg. If it is the case, could you please provide it?

Thank you for your help.
Yours faithfully,

Stéphane Horel
