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:

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

Dear EC ARES NOREPLY,
Thank you for your response and the accompanying information about record keeping within your DG. However, my request was twofold, as it also requested ''memos, guidance, guidelines, or training material (or any other document) for DG staff on the processing of access to information requests.''
In the response you do not mention anything or any information about access to information requests. Can you please also provide me an answer concerning this specific part of my request?
Thank you in advance.
