Documents referencing "Accidental Americans" and/or "US Persons"
Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting a list of all documents pertaining to "Accidental Americans" and/or "US Persons", or contributing to statements, guidelines, and decisions referencing such groups.
Please note that this list should also include documents referencing member state / supervisory authority opinions, views, and commentaries. If necessary, information on authorship and national origin may be redacted to avoid undue external pressure, in line with the sentiment and intentions expressed in EU Ombudsman decision 386/2021 with regards to right of access requests to another European Union body.
Dear Mr Lee,
Thank you for your communication, which we acknowledge receipt of. We will be reverting within due course, pursuant to Regulation (EC) 1049/2001.

Dear Mr Lee,
Thank you for your emails requesting access to documents pursuant to Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001. The European Banking Authority (EBA) strives to be transparent and open to as great an extent as possible.
The EBA has provided you with the documents falling within the scope of your request in the context of your previous access to documents requests concerning all documents pertaining to the United States Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) or contributing to statements, guidelines, and decisions referencing FATCA, and to PETI Petitions 1088/2016, 323/2021, 1470/2020 and 394/2021. The EBA does not hold any other documents falling within the scope of your request.
We trust that the above is of assistance to you. However, should you not be satisfied with our reply, you may consider your right to a confirmatory application under Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001.
