Dear Human Resources and Security,
Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting the annual report for IDOC, containing the reviews of disciplinary cases and their outcomes, for the year 2019. This should be due out shortly.
I should be grateful if it may be in hard copy.
I am not an EU national as a result of Brexit. However;
(i) This is a resend of a request submitted (but unacknowledged) in January, when I was one;
(ii) Article 2.2 of the Regulation allows for requests from non-nationals;
(iii) The report covers a period when the UK was a member state, and therefore carries a public interest relevance;
(iv) I could simply ask a colleague who is an EU national to resubmit: previous release of the document shows the request in itself is not controversial.
Please post it to -
1, Parliament Street,
House of Commons,
United Kingdom SW1A 0AA
Thank you for your e-mail of 22 April 2020. We hereby acknowledge receipt of your application for access to documents, which was registered today under reference number GESTDEM 2020/2423 .
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 19/5/20. 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.
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.
