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, we prefer the documents in electronic format. Documents that cannot be sent in electronic format should be sent to Corporate Europe Observatory, Rue d’Edimbourg 26, 1050 Brussels.
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.
Thank you for your assistance.

Dear Madam,

 

Thank you for your e-mail dated 12/03/2020. We hereby acknowledge receipt
of your application for access to documents, which was registered on
13/03/2020.

 

Please note that the SG will handle part of your request under Gestdem
reference 2020/1497 and DG CLIMA will handle part of your request under
Gestdem reference 2020/1498. You will receive a separate reply from each
of these services.

 

In accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding public access to
European Parliament, Council and Commission documents, your application
will be handled within 15 working days.

 

The time limit will expire on 03/04/2020. In case this time limit needs to
be extended, you will be informed in due course.

 

You have lodged your application via the AsktheEU.org website. Please note
that this is 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 AsktheEU.org website
is responsible and accountable for the processing of your personal data
via that website, and not the European Commission. For further information
on your rights, please refer to the third party’s privacy policy.

 

We understand that the third party running that website usually publishes
the content of applicants’ correspondence with the European Commission on
that website. This includes the personal data that you may have
communicated to the European 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.

 

If you do not wish your correspondence with the European Commission to be
published on the AsktheEU.org website, you can provide us with an
alternative, private e-mail address for further correspondence.

 

In that case, the European Commission will send all future electronic
correspondence addressed to you only to that private address.

 

Yours faithfully,

According to standard operational procedure, the reply is usually also

extraordinary health and security measures currently in force during to
the COVID-19 epidemics, which include the requirement for all Commission

Dear sirs,

Thanks for your response.

I am surprised that out of 18 meetings of which I requested minutes, I only got access to minutes of six of the meetings.

I would like you to confirm that this is the case and there are not reports, summaries, minutes, notes or record-keeping of any kind produced as an outcome of these meetings.

Yours sincerely,

Belen Balanya

Acción por el Clima

Dear Ms Balanya,

Thank you very much for your email.

As explained in our letter from 20 April 2020, the administrative handling of your request was split between DG CLIMA (Gestdem 2020/1498) and the Secretariat-General of the Commission (Gestdem 2020/1497).

Therefore, DG CLIMA reply letter referred only to the Access to Documents case Gestdem 2020/1498. The scope of this request corresponded to 7 meetings of Director General Mauro Petriccione, these meetings are mentioned in our reply letter.

In the coming days, the Secretariat General of the Commission will provide a reply to the Access to Documents case Gestdem 2020/1497.

Please let us know if you need any further clarification.

Best regards,

Access to Documents team
