Observations from the European Commission to the AMIF and ISF-Borders and Visa National Programmes of Spain, Italy and Greece
Dear Directorate E of Migration and Home Affairs,
Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001,
I am requesting documents in relation to the implementation of the EU Regulations No. 514/2014 (laying down general provisions on the Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund and on the instrument for financial support for police cooperation, preventing and combating crime, and crisis management) and the EU Regulation No. 515/2014 (establishing, as part of the Internal Security Fund, the instrument for financial support for external borders and visa).
Article 14(6) of the Regulation No. 514/2014 establishes that “the Commission shall make observations within three months of the date of submission of the proposed national programmes”.
Article 14(8) of the Regulation No. 514/2014 establishes that “the Commission shall inform the European Parliament of the overall outcome of the application of paragraphs 5 and 6”.
In view of these provisions, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:
1. All observations made by the European Commission to the proposed national programmes submitted by Spain, Italy and Greece regarding
• AMIF, and
• ISF-Borders and Visa.
2. The outcomes of the observations shared between the European Commission and European Parliament. This may include, but not necessarily limited to, reports, minutes of meetings, verbatim reports of meetings, transcripts, etc that would provide a record of the proceedings, as well as and any correspondence – including, but not limited to, letters, e-mails, and any attachments –.
I remain available for any question or clarification you might have in relation to my request.
Thank you in advance.
