Dear Mr Lopez,

After having examined carefully your request, it seems that it should be considered as a request for information rather than request for access to documents pursuant to Regulation 1049/2001. Therefore, your request will be treated as such and the reply to it will be provided by DG ESTAT.

At the same time, we will close your request for access to documents accordingly.

If you have any questions, please let us know.

With kind regards,
Access to Documents Team

European Commission
