Dear Madams & Sirs,

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:

1) all correspondence (including email) since September 2021 between Commissioner McGuinness, and/or her cabinet and/or officials from DG FISMA with representatives of German companies and associations from the financial sector, on the issue of Basel III. Companies and associations I am particularly interested in are Deutsche Bank, Commerzbank, the German banking association, Verband deutscher Pfandbriefbanken, Deutscher Sparkassen- und Giroverband (DSGV), Bundesverband Volksbanken und Raiffeisenbanken (BVR), Verband Öffentlicher Banken (VÖB), Fondsverband BVI, Verband der privaten Bausparkassen, Bundesverband Alterntive Investment and Deutsches Aktieninstitut (DAI).

2) a list of meetings since September 2021 between Commissioner McGuinness, and/or her cabinet and/or officials from DG FISMA with representatives from the above mentioned companies and associations, in which the issue of Basel III was discussed.

3) minutes of the meetings mentioned above.

I would like to make clear 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.

To the extent possible, I prefer the documents in electronic format.

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.

I reserve the right to appeal.

Please confirm having received this application. I look forward to your reply within 15 business days, according to the regulation.

Please find my postal address here: Finanzwende Recherche, Motzstraße 32, 10777 Berlin, Germany.

Thank you in advance.

Yours faithfully,

Pia Eberhardt, Estabilidad Financiera, Servicios Financieros y Unión de los Mercados de Capitales
