Dear European Parliament

Under the art 15.2 TFEU dealing with Legislative Transparency and art. 15.3 of the same Treaty framing the right of access to documents (art 42 of the EU Charter) and implemented by Regulation 1049/2001 and the related jurisprudence (case T-540-15) I am hereby requesting

1 - the dates and the Agendas of the "Technical" and "Political" Trilogue meetings which took place between March 17th until March 30th, 2023.

2 - the TEXTS OF THE LEGISLATIVE PREPARATORY DOCUMENTS SUBMITTED OR DEBATED AT THESE MEETINGS. As foreseen by art.10.3 Regulation 1049/01 an electronic version would be highly appreciated.

May I take this occasion to stress that, according to art. 15.2 TFEU and art. 12 of Regulation 1049/01 documents of legislative nature should be made directly accessible on the EP Register of documents (unless a specific exception has to be applied at the moment of the creation of the legislative preparatory document).
It seems to me self evident that the scope of the Institution's obligation of being transparent when acting as legislator as foreseen by art. 15.2 of the TFEU is a self standing one and should not depend from a Citizen' request of access to documents.
In the same perspective see also several EP plenary Resolutions (*)

Thanks in advance

Yours faithfully,
Emilio De Capitani
11 rue Darwin
1190 Bruxelles

(*) See notably point 28 of March 11st 2014 EP Resolution on accces ro documents "Calls on the Commission, the Council and Parliament to ensure the greater transparency of informal trilogues, by holding the meetings in public, publishing documentation including calendars, agendas, minutes, documents examined, amendments, decisions taken, information on Member State delegations and their positions and minutes, in a standardised and easy accessible online environment, by default and without prejudice to the exemptions listed in Article 4(1) of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001;"

Dear Mr De Capitani,

The time limit for responding to your application for public access to
documents under Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001, as registered on Mar 30,
2023, expires on Apr 25, 2023.

However, considering the number of files concerned by your application and
your concurrent application for similar documents, given the total time
period covered and the need to establish an overview of the meetings
concerned by your request, our consultations have been taking more time
than normally, so that Parliament must exceptionally extend the time limit
provided by Article 7(1) of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 by a further 15
working days in accordance with Article 7(3) of that Regulation in order
to reply to your application.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience. We thank you for your
understanding.

Best regards,
