Dear Taxation and Customs Union,

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:

All documents including communications and presentations received in the last 24 months from lobby groups and/or member states on the subject of a European border carbon tax.

Yours faithfully,

Neil Roberts
Bridge House, 69 London Rd, UK, TW1 3SP

Dear Sir,

Thank you for your e-mail dated 14/08/2019. We hereby acknowledge receipt of your application for access to documents, which was registered on 14/08/2019 under reference number GestDem 2019/4816.

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 05/09/2019. In case this time limit needs to be extended, you will be informed in due course.

You have lodged your application via the AsktheEU.org website. Please note 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 is responsible and accountable for the processing of your personal data via that website, and not the European Commission. For further information on your rights, please refer to the third party’s privacy policy.

We understand that the third party running that website usually publishes the content of applicants’ correspondence with the European Commission on that website. This includes the personal data that you may have communicated to the European 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 your correspondence with the European Commission to be published on the AsktheEU.org website, you can provide us with an alternative, private e-mail address for further correspondence. In that case, the European Commission will send all future electronic correspondence addressed to you only to that private address.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Sir,

We refer to your request dated 14/08/2019 in which you make a request for access to documents, registered on 14/08/2019 under the above mentioned reference number.

Your application is currently being handled. However, we will not be in a position to complete the handling of your application within the time limit of 15 working days, which expires on 05/08/2019.

An extended time limit for more in-depth investigations is needed in order to complete our assessment on the possibility for the public disclosure of the documents requested.

Therefore, we have to extend the time limit with 15 working days in accordance with Article 7(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding public access to documents. The new time limit expires on 26/09/2019.

We apologize for this delay and for any inconvenience this may cause.

Yours faithfully,
