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

Dear Ms Perrin,

 

We refer to your application for access to documents, registered on the 02
April 2019 under the above mentioned reference number.

 

Your request covers a period of time between 1st January  2017 and 27th of
March 2019 and concerns documents:

 

-          including briefings, reports, correspondence (email or other)
including but not limited to correspondence with other Commission DGs,
including all attachments to the said correspondence,

-          a list of all meetings, as well as agendas and minutes or any
other reports of such meetings,

-          mentioning any of the following words: SAM, SAM Unit,
Scientific Advice Mechanism, and either "Sustainable Food Systems" or
"Sustainable Food Production".

 

Considering the parameters of your request, the handling of your
application involves the assessment of potentially a very large number of
documents originating from different services of the directorate and from
third parties. The analysis of these documents, together with the need to
consult the third parties concerned in accordance with Article 4(4) and
4(5) of Regulation 1049/2001 when needed cannot be expected to be
completed within the normal time limits set out in Article  7 of
Regulation 1049/2001.

 

As stated by the EU Courts, the European Commission needs to respect the
principle of proportionality and ensure that the interest of the applicant
for access is balanced against the workload resulting from the processing
of the application for access, in order to safeguard the interests of good
administration.  

 

Therefore article 6(3) of Regulation 1049/2001 provides that in the event
of an application relating to a very long document or to a very large
number of documents, the institution concerned may confer with the
applicant informally, with a view to finding a fair solution.

 

In accordance with the case law of the EU Court, a fair solution can only
concern the content or the number of documents applied for, not the
deadline for replying. This means that the scope of your requests must be
reduced in a way that would enable its treatment  within the extended
deadline of 15+15 working days.

 

Based on the above-mentioned provision, we would kindly ask to narrow down
the scope of your request (i.e; the precise subject matter/timeframe
covered), so as to reduce it to a more manageable number.

Please note in this regard that, for example, there are potentially
thousands of documents containing the word(s) ‘SAM’ or ‘SAM unit’, given
that this is the denomination of one of the services within DG RTD.
Therefore, we would kindly request you to specify the objective of your
wide-scoped request and your specific interest in the documents requested.

 

Therefore, in order to limit the excessive administrative burden relating
to the handling of your wide-scoped request, we propose you to:

-          restrict the scope of your request to meetings held by the
senior management (which means Commissioner Carlos Moedas, members of his
Cabinet and Director General of DG RTD) and to specify the subject of the
documents you are interested in.

 

In order to enable us to provide you with a reply as soon as possible, we
would ask you for a swift response to our proposal for a fair solutions
within five working days at the latest, by email to
[6][email address].

In the absence of a reply within five working days, we will unilaterally
restrict the scope of your application to those parts that can be dealt
with within the extended deadline of 30 working days, counting from the
registration of your application.

 

Thank you in advanced for your cooperation.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

RTD Access to documents

Dear Madam/Sir,

Thank you very much for your reply.

Please note that my initial request concerned the following:

"From the Research Commissioner Moedas and/or members of his cabinet, as well as from DG RTD, any document matching the following criteria:

- between 1st January 2017 and 27th March 2019,
- including briefings, reports, correspondence (email or other) including but not limited to correspondence with other Commission DGs, including all attachments to the said correspondence,
- a list of all meetings, as well as agendas and minutes or any other reports of such meetings,
- mentioning any of the following words: SAM, SAM Unit, Scientific Advice Mechanism,
AND either "Sustainable Food Systems" or "Sustainable Food Production""

Please allow me to draw your attention to the "AND", meaning that I am only interested in documents mentioning 'SAM' or the 'SAM Unit' so long as they also mention "Sustainable Food Systems" or "Sustainable Food Production". I believe this already narrows down the scope of my request.

I am afraid a restriction of the scope of my request to "meetings" held by the senior management of DG RTD would be neither satisfactory nor proportionate. Indeed, the scope of my request also covers any DG RTD correspondence (email or other) including but not limited to correspondence with other Commission DGs, pertaining to the drafting, adoption and publication of the SAM scoping paper "Towards an EU Sustainable Food System".

Finally, please allow me to point at some past FOI requests of equally wide scope (e.g. this one https://www.asktheeu.org/en/request/dual...) which led to a positive reply from the European Commission.

I thank you in advance for your consideration.

Yours sincerely,

Camille Perrin

Dear Ms Perrin,

 

Thank you for your message of 11 April 2019.

 

We assessed your clarifications and we regret to have to confirm that your
request needs to be restricted as its scope is still too broad for being
handled within the deadline.

 

In your reply, you confirmed your intention of receiving documents
mentioning the words “SAM, SAM Unit, Scientific Advice Mechanism” together
with either “Sustainable Food Systems” or “ Sustainable Food Production”,
of the entire staff of DG RTD and not only of the senior management.
Unfortunately the Commission’s tools for document management do not allow
to perform such a search based on combined criteria.

 

However, in order to address your request as thoroughly as possible we
have performed a preliminary and rough search in the document management
tool using the available functionalities and we could identify a minimum
of 250 documents for each of the criteria mentioned in your message, only
for the past year. This volume of documents cannot be processed within the
time limit prescribed by the Regulation. Therefore we invite you to
reconsider a restriction of the scope of your request and to identify some
documents which you would like to give priority to.

Whether the proposal as per our message of the 11 April 2019 does not
correspond to your interest, we kindly ask you to provide an alternative
but equally manageable solution.

 

Regarding your reference to previous access to documents requests, we
would like to clarify that over the years the Commission practice has
changed towards the handling of wide-scoped requests.

Unfortunately, taking into account the high number of requests for access
to documents we receive and the limited resources available, the documents
need to be limited to a manageable number, in order to safeguard the
interests of good administration.

For this reason, the Regulation provides for a possibility to confer with
the applicant in order to find a fair solution (see Article 6.3 of
Regulation 1049/2001). Please be reassured that the purpose of this
attempt to find a common agreement on the restriction is to process your
request and provide you with a reply, both aligned to your interests and
timely. Furthermore, we would also like to highlight that each access to
documents request requires an ad hoc assessment which has to take into
account all the specificities of the case.

 

We are looking forward to receiving your proposal on the restriction of
the scope and we thank you in advance for your kind cooperation.

 

We remind you that, should we not be able to find a proper solution, with
a view to safeguarding the interests of good administration, unfortunately
we will be obliged to balance your possible interest in access against the
workload resulting from the processing of your application, unilaterally
restricting the scope of your application to the categories of documents
that can be dealt with within the time limit from the date of registration
of your application.

 

We hope the above is useful and we remain available for any further
question you may have.

 

Best regards,

 

RTD Access to documents

Dear Madam/Sir,

Thank you very much for you reply. Based on your feedback, I have reconsidered my request and agree to narrow it down to the senior management of DG RTD, as you suggested. The request would thus read as follows:

"From the Research Commissioner Moedas and/or members of his cabinet, any document matching the following criteria:

- between 1st January 2017 and 27th March 2019,
- including briefings, reports, correspondence (email or other) including but not limited to correspondence with other Commission DGs, including all attachments to the said correspondence,
- a list of all meetings, as well as agendas and minutes or any other reports of such meetings,
- mentioning any of the following words: SAM, SAM Unit, Scientific Advice Mechanism,
AND either "Sustainable Food Systems" or "Sustainable Food Production""

I thank you once more for considering this revised request.

Yours sincerely,

Camille Perrin

Your application is currently being handled. However, we will not be in a
