Access to data in not open format

Nous attendons Chantal VIALA de lire la réponse récent et mettre à jour le statut.

Dear European Food Safety Authority,

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 cited in https://dwh.efsa.europa.eu/bi/asp/Main.a... in an open format.

Indeed, it's impossible to use the data in this web page because they are published under Adobe Flash format. It's a closed- source format : text can't be neither copied nor printed and hence are unusable. There is no way to convert Adobe Flash data to an open format.

Closed-source format data are a major impediment to transparency. Ans as told in Transparency Portal (1)
(As a European citizen, you have a right to know how the European institutions are preparing these decisions, who participates in preparing them, who receives funding from the EU budget, and what documents are held or produced to prepare and adopt the legal acts. ) You also have a right to access those documents, and make your views known, either directly, or indirectly, through intermediaries that represent you.

I expect these data as one more proof of transparency.

Yours faithfully,

Dear EFSA.public.access.to.documents,

One more time, I observe you think european reglementations doesn't apply to you. You have the obligation to deliver these documents within 15 days.

I remind you the commission decision of 2 October 2009 setting out the practical arrangements for the exchange of information by electronic means between Member States under Chapter VI of Directive 2006/123/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council on services in the internal market (http://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/E...)

Today it seems you have removed any access to documents as can be seen in https://dwh.efsa.europa.eu/bi/asp/Main.a... .
You play very bad game with one more violation of citizen rights.

I praise you firmly to respect your initial word and the european rules.

Dear Ms Viala,

 

In accordance with the established legal framework, EFSA distinguishes
between access to documents falling within the scope of [1]Regulation (EC)
No 1049/2001 and access to information.

 

As per your request at hand, EFSA considers it as a request for
information since, first, it’s a request for data aleady publicly
available and, second, your question relates to the formatting in which
the data was made available.

 

Under Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001, EFSA shall supply documents in an
existing version and format, in accordance with Article 10(3). The data
for the moment only exist in the published format.

 

However, please be informed that the OpenFoodTOx database is already in
our data curation pipeline. Once the curation has been completed,
including transformation into tab separated text format, it will be
published on [2]EFSA Knowledge Junction. The Knowledge Junction is a
curated, open repository for the exchange of evidence and supporting
materials used in food and feed safety risk assessments.

 

We will contact you as soon at the dataset is published in the different
format, in order for you to access it as soon as possible.

 

We trust the present e-mail addresses your request at this stage.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

EFSA Public access to documents Team
