Access to Agendas and EU legislative preparatory documents debated in Trilogues meetings from July 06th to September 15th, 2023

La demande est réussie.

(NB An identical request has been submitted to the Council of the European Union)

Subject : access to Agendas and EU legislative preparatory documents debated in Trilogues meetings from July 06th to September 15th , 2023

Dear European Parliament
According to news agencies several legislative Trilogues meetings took places between July 06th to September 15th 2023.
However, no official information has yet been published by the co-legislator in their Registers of documents notwithstanding the provisions of art. 15.2 of TFEU, art. 11 and 12 of Regulation 1049/01 and the relevant CJEU Jurisprudence (notably, Case T-540/15).

Bearing in mind that participative democracy, as promoted by the EU Treaties, is meaningful only if legislative preparatory documents are accessible in a timely manner (see Case T-163/21) and that according to art.15 of Regulation 1049/01 “The institutions shall develop good administrative practices in order to facilitate the exercise of the right of access..” I therefore kindly ask to release as soon as possible, in the public domain, the meeting agendas and the legislative preparatory documents debated in Trilogues legislative meetings from June 08th until July 05th.

Thanks in advance for your attention
