Dear Communications Networks, Content and Technology,
Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting all documents which contain input, feedback, comments or analysis from any and all EU agencies to the development of the AI Act.
This may include, but not necessarily be limited to:
- position papers, reports, opinion papers submitted by those agencies
- correspondence, minutes of the meetings, verbatim reports of the meetings, transcripts, that would provide a record of the proceedings of meetings between DG CNNECT officials (including the Commissioner and Cabinet) and those agencies to discuss the AI Act.
I am interested in documents dated from January 2020 until now.
