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:

- Any application from Mr Kasper Zeuthen to take up employment by the US Chamber of Commerce, as required by the Staff Regulations

The time limit will expire on 27 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 Ask the EU 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.

Dear Madam, Sir,

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 which the EEAS has registered under reference number 2021/069.

I had asked for:
- Any application from Mr Kasper Zeuthen to take up employment by the US Chamber of Commerce, as required by the Staff Regulations

- The European Commission's decision regarding Mr Zeuthen's application

- Any communication between Mr Zeuthen and the European Commission (e-mails, notes of conversations, etc) about his employment

The context of my request being that Mr Kasper Zeuthen worked for the Delegation of the European Union to the United States until March 2021, and that same month, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce announced Mr Zeuthen " will serve as Vice President, Communications, with a focus on international affairs, trade policy and media relations".

The EEAS informed me that "the EEAS does not hold any document matching your request". I would like you to double-check if this is true. If it is, I would like you to acknowledge what this means: that Mr Zeuthen has taken up new employment in conflict with the Staff Regulations.

After all: "If a member of the EU staff wishes to leave his or her institution and begin a new job within 2 years, he or she must inform the Commission in order to obtain prior authorisation." (https://ec.europa.eu/info/about-european...)

Sincerely,
Peter Teffer
