Access to documents request: 2021-09-07 meeting between Geneviève Tuts and Apple Inc.

Global Witness a fait une demande de Accès à l'information à Justice et Consommateurs

Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

La demande est réussie.

Dear Sir or Madam,

Referring to Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 on public access to EU documents and to the 'Aarhus Convention' I would herewith like to ask for access to the following:

All documents—including but not limited to correspondence, emails, minutes, notes (hand written or electronic), audio or video recordings, verbatim reports, operational conclusions, lines to take, briefings, and presentations—related to the meeting on 2021-09-07 between Geneviève Tuts and Apple Inc..

In consideration of the environment and the current circumstances with the COVID pandemic I would prefer to receive documents electronically.

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.

Should my request be denied wholly or partially, please explain the denial or all deletions 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. 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.

If anything is unclear or would benefit from further discussion please do not hesitate to contact me by email. My address for any written correspondence necessary is Naomi Hirst, Global Witness, Rue Belliard 53, 1000, Bruxelles, Belgique.

Thank you for your assistance.

Yours sincerely
Naomi Hirst.

Dear Ms HIRST,


We refer to your e-mails of 03/12/2021 in which you make a request for
access to documents, registered on 07/12/2021 under the above mentioned

Your application is currently being handled. However, we will not be in a
position to complete the handling of your applications within the time
limit of 15 working days, which expires on 06/01/2022.


An extended time limit is needed as the application concerns documents

public access to documents. The new time limit expires on 27/01/2022.
