concerning the issue of the fertiliser industry and climate policies since January 2000

Please consider especially all correspondence ans meetings between the Commissioner for Climate and/or representatives of the DG with actors of fertiliser producers and interest groups as well as consultancies with links to the fertiliser industry
(such as Fertilizer Europe, European Fertilizers Import Association, European Sustainable Phosphorus Platform, European Crop Care Association, Nutrient Platform, YARA S.A, Association for a better European Access to Nutrients, Asociación Nacional de Fabricantes de Fertilizantes (ANFFE), Association des Producteurs Européens de Potasse (APEP), Hellenic Fertilizer Association, CEN Technical Committee 260, European Consortium of the Organic-based Fertilizer Industry (ECOFI), European Organic Fertilizers Manufacturers Association (EUROFEMA), Alliance Européenne des Engrais Phosphatés (AEEP), European Biostimulants Industry Council (EBIC), Agricultural Industries Confederation (AIC), Mosaic, The Fertiliser Institute, International Fertiliser Industry Association, International Plant Nutrition Institute, the international federation of industrial energy consumers, European Chemical Industry Council (CEFIC), Agricultural Industries Confederation (AIC), Industrieverband Agrar, Prospero & Partners, ecofys, copenhagen economics, Achema

and/or
- the issue of the 2030 Eu climate and energy framework (from January 2013 till now (June 2017))

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.

To the extent possible, I prefer the documents in electronic format.

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. 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.

I will send you my postal address via e-mail

Thank you very much in advance,
Ronja Heise

Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs

Dear Madam,

We refer to your e-mail dated 09/06/2017 in which you make a request for
access to documents, registered on 13/06/2017 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 today.

An extended time limit is needed considering that your application covers
a long period of time, so that a large number of documents have to be
examined.

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 26/07/2017.

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

Yours faithfully,

Dear Ms Schuster,

thank you for your response and please excuse the delayed answer.

I'm sorry, that my request is still very broad. I'm happy to receive the
information in tranches. Would it be possible, that you focus the research
for documents concerning meetings and communication concerning the issue
of fertiliser and EU ETS initially on meetings and communication with
Fertiliser Europe and Yara- so that these documents would definitely be
included in the first trance due end of July (provided the third party
consultation can be done by then)? 

Thank you very much,

Ronja Heise

till June 2015);

3)         the issue of the 2030 EU climate and energy framework (from

As a reply to our fair solution proposal, we take note of your agreement
to reduce the time frame for ETS related meetings and correspondence
(point 1) as from January 2008 to June 2015, and we thank you for that.
However, the scope of your request remains very broad and we will not be

of disclosure will already be finalised by then.

 

We propose two further deadlines for disclosure of the second and third
tranches of documents, which, would be respectively the 15 September
2017 and the 30 September 2017.

 

Alternatively, you can formally withdraw those parts of your request
that cannot be handled within the extended deadline (26 July 2017) of
Regulation 1049/2001, and re-introduce applications for access to these
parts in successive stages.

 

We would much appreciate a reply from your side at your earliest
convenience and in any case within 5 days after receiving this email to
