Dear Environment,

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:

For the period between 1 January 2019 to date:

- a list of all lobby and industry meetings and/or calls held by the DG ENV, including any Cabinet Members and/or officials, during which “deep-sea mining” and/or “seabed mining” and/or “marine minerals” were discussed.
The list should include: date, individuals attending and organisational affiliation, as well as the issues discussed;

- all minutes and other reports of these meetings and/or calls;

- all documents prepared for the purpose of the meetings and/or exchanged during the course of the meetings.
- all correspondence, including attachments (i.e. any emails, mail correspondence or telephone call notes) between the DG ENV, including any Cabinet Members and/or officials, and any lobby group and/or industry representative discussing “deep-sea mining” and/or “seabed mining” and/or “marine minerals”;

To the extent possible, I prefer the documents in electronic format.
Should my request be denied wholly or partially, I kindly request to explain the denial or all redactions referring to specific exemptions in the regulation. Also I would expect the partial release of documents, in case of partial exemption according to article 4.6.

Please confirm receipt of this application. I look forward to receiving your reply within 15 business days, as established by the regulation.

Yours faithfully,

Matteo Civillini
