Memos, guidance and guidelines on record creation DG COMP

La demande est partiellement réussie.

Dear Competition,

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. Memos, guidance, guidelines, or training material (or any other document) for DG staff on record creation and/or record keeping. I am particularly interested in documents that refer to creation/keeping of:

· Agendas (diaries of public officials´ engagements), lists of meetings, minutes of meetings, lists of participants in meetings, and documents justifying decisions.

2. Memos, guidance, guidelines, or training material (or any other document) for DG staff on the processing of access to information requests.

Yours faithfully,
