Access to documents request: June 1 meeting between Kadri Simson and E.ON SE

Barnaby Pace a fait une demande de Accès à l'information à Énergie

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 June 1 between Kadri Simson and E.ON SE. In addition I would like any documents relating to the June 1 meeting between Stefano Grassi and Thor-Sten Vertmann and E.ON SE. It is unclear from Commission disclosures whether these were in fact a single meeting or separate meetings so I have included both here for the sake of clarity.

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 or on +44 7525 592 738. My address for any written correspondence necessary is Barnaby Pace, Global Witness, Rue Belliard 53, 1000, Bruxelles, Belgique.

Thank you for your assistance.

Yours sincerely
Barnaby Pace

Dear Sir,

 

Thank you for your e-mail of 12 July 2021. We hereby acknowledge receipt
of your application for access to documents, which was registered on
12/07/2021 under reference number GESTDEM 2021/4494.

 

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 3 August 2021. In case this time limit needs
to be extended, you will be informed in due course.

 

You have lodged your application via 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 Commission.

For further information on your rights, please refer to the third party’s
privacy policy.

 

We understand that the third party running the AsktheEU.org website
usually publishes the content of applicants’ correspondence with the
Commission on that website. This includes the personal data that you may
have communicated to the 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 that your correspondence with the Commission is
published on a private third-party website such as AsktheEU.org, you can
provide us with an alternative, private e-mail address for further
correspondence. In that case, the Commission will send all future
electronic correspondence addressed to you only to that private address,
and it will use only that private address to reply to your request. You
should still remain responsible to inform the private third-party website
about this change of how you wish to communicate with, and receive a reply
from, the Commission.

 

For information on how we process your personal data visit our page
[5]Privacy statement - access to documents.

 

Yours faithfully,
