Contact TABC about TTIP / TiSA

La demande est réussie.

Dear DG Trade,

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:

- Any study, impact assessment, forecast, paper or other document authored by the Trans-Atlantic Business Council (TABC) and/or the Trans-Atlantic Business Dialogue (TABD) in which the TTIP-negotiations, the Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA) as well as future US-EU trade relations in general were mentioned or discussed between June 2016 and October 2017.

- All correspondence (including emails) between DG Trade officials (including the Commissioner and the Cabinet) and members and/or representatives of the Trans-Atlantic Business Council (TABC) and/or the Trans-Atlantic Business Dialogue (TABD) in which the TTIP-negotiations, the Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA) as well as future US-EU trade relations in general were mentioned or discussed between June 2016 and October 2017.

- A list of meetings including detailed minutes and any other reports of such meetings between DG TRADE's officials (including the Commissioner and his Cabinet members) and members and/or representatives of the Trans-Atlantic Business Council (TABC) and/or the Trans-Atlantic Business Dialogue (TABD) in which the TTIP-negotiations, the Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA) as well as future US-EU trade relations in general were mentioned or discussed between June 2016 and October 2017.

- All correspondence (including emails) between DG Trade officials (including the Commissioner and the Cabinet) themselves, and members and/or representatives of the Trans-Atlantic Business Council (TABC) and/or the Trans-Atlantic Business Dialogue (TABD) about or mentioning the Transatlantic General Counsel Summit held in London on June 7, 2016.

Should my request be denied wholly or partially, please explain the denial or all deletions referring to specific exemptions in the regulation. Also I expect the partial release of documents, in case of partial exemption according to article 4.6.

Do not hesitate to get back to me should you need any further
information which could facilitate your research. My postal adress will be forwarded to you.

Thank you for your assistance.

Yours faithfully,
Hans Wetzels
