Robert Gorwa a fait une demande de Accès à l'information à Marché intérieur, Industrie, Entrepreneuriat et PME

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 Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs,

As catalogued in the TRIS database, the Commission and Sweden issued comments on notification number 2020/544/A (the Austrian Communication Platforms Act).

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting all documents which contain the reactions of the Commission and the Member States to that notification ('Act improving law enforcement on social networks').

I would like to obtain:
1. the comments the Commission
2. the comments from Sweden and any other member state
3. any other analysis, commentary or opinions on the notification 2020/544/A from the Legal Service, DG CNECT, DG GROW, DG JUST, or other DGs, including draft reports, memos, or other documents

In case that documents should be classified or cannot be released because of exceptions of special treatment, I am asking for the name, source (e.g. the institution, DG and unit) and any reference number of these documents. If information under the scope of regulation 1049/2001 is not held by DG GROW but by the Commission, the Commissioner or another DG or Commission unit, I would like this information to be included in this request.

Yours,

Robert Gorwa

Dear Mr Gorwa,

 

Thank you for your e-mail of 18/12/2020. We hereby acknowledge receipt of
your application for access to documents, which was registered on
21/12/2020 under reference number GESTDEM 2020/7903.

 

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
20/01/2021. 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.

Parliament, Council and Commission documents (OJ L 145, 31.05.2001, pages

Your request is currently being handled. However, in view of the number

today, 20 January 2021.

 

For this reason, this time-limit will be extended by 15 working days, in

10 February 2021.

 

Thank you for your understanding.
