MAAC and other market access issues

La demande est réussie.

Dear Madams & Sirs,

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:

1) a list of market access working groups, which are still active (so, which, for example, had meetings in 2016 or 2017);

2) minutes and other reports of the meetings of the market access advisory committee (MAAC) which took place between January 2016 and today;

3) a list of meetings of DG Trade officials and/or representatives (including the Commissioner and the Cabinet) and representatives of individual companies and/or industry federations such as BusinessEurope, the European Services Forum (ESF), the Federation of German Industries (BDI), in which the "Enhanced Partnership for Implementation" was discussed (since January 2016);

4) minutes and other reports of these meetings.

I would appreciate if you could take the Code of Good Administrational Behaviour into account when considering sections 1 and 3 of this request.

Yours sincerely,

Pia Eberhardt
