Refused registration to Access to Documents requests

Mathias Schindler made this Accès à l'information request to Affaires maritimes et de la pêche as part of a batch sent to 35 authorities

Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

La demande est partiellement réussie.

Dear Maritime Affairs and Fisheries,

I am requesting a copy of each Access to Documents request from 2018 and 2019 that was refused registration because the requesting person did not provide a postal address.

Please do not transfer this request to another authority, I am specifically asking for requests that were sent to you.

I am perfectly fine with the redaction of personal information.

Since my postal address is on file and there is no legal requirement for a provision of a postal address (and since the European Commission has stopped sending out physical letters in Access to Document request procedures during the pandemic anyway) please do not bother asking me again for a postal address, which yould be especially hillarious given the topic of this request, don't you think?

Yours faithfully,

Mathias Schindler

Dear Sir,


Please find attached reply to your initial GestDem request registered
under the reference 2020/3457.


According to standard operational procedure, the reply is usually also
sent to you by registered post. Please note, however, that due to the
extraordinary health and security measures currently in force during to
the COVID-19 epidemics, which include the requirement for all Commission
non-critical staff to telework, we are unfortunately not in a position to
follow this procedure until further notice.


We would therefore appreciate if you could confirm receipt of the present
e-mail by replying to this email.


Thank you.
