Dear FRA - Documents,

The form you have sent me does not allow me to put my country of residence as the United States of America. Please send me a form which allows me to register my country of residence as the United States of America.

Please note that Article 1 (a) of the EC 1049/2001 requires FRA to "ensure widest possible access to documents".

In addition, Article 2 (2) of the EC 1049/2001 allows the FRA to give documents to non-EU persons. Article 2 (2) of the EC 1049/2001 states, "The institutions may, subject to the same principles, conditions and limits, grant access to documents to any natural or legal person not residing or not having its registered office in a Member State."

Yours sincerely,

Rachael Tackett

Dear Ms Tackett,

 

Regarding your request for public access to documents at the Fundamental
Rights Agency, a response was sent to your private email address on the
20/03/2017 - Ref: 2017-outgoing-000412:

 

Vienna 20/03/2017

Ref: 2017-outgoing-000412

 

Dear Ms Tackett,

 

We refer to your request dated 02 March 2017 in which you make a request
for access to documents, registered on 2 March 2017, under reference
number 2017-incoming-000267. 

 

We regret to inform you that no documents were found that would correspond
to the description given in your application.  Indeed, as specified in
Article 2(3) of Regulation 1049/2001, the right of access as defined in
that regulation applies only to existing documents in the possession of
the institution.

 

Given that no such documents have been identified, the FRA is not in a
position to handle your request.

 

In case you would disagree with the assessment, you are entitled, in
accordance with Article 7(2) of Regulation 1049/2001, to make a
confirmatory application requesting the FRA to review this position.

 

Such a confirmatory application should be addressed within 15 working days
upon receipt of this email to FRA: [1][FRA request email]

 

Yours faithfully,

 

Kind regards

Dear European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights,

Please pass this on to the person who reviews confirmatory applications.

I am filing the following confirmatory application with regards to my access to documents request 'Request for Privacy Shield Records'.

The EU Charter of Fundamental Rights, Art. 8, guarantees the protection of personal data. In the FRA's implementing regulation EC No 168/2007 Para. 13 states that EU institutions can request advice and guidance from FRA on proposals. The implementing regulation also states that the FRA also has the right to issue opinions on its own initiative.

The FRA failed to conduct an adequate search for public documents. The FRA is illegally withholding and preventing my access to public documents. In essence, the FRA is claiming that no EU institution asked the FRA's advice on the US-EU Privacy Shield agreement.

Either the FRA is illegally withholding public documents, or the FRA has failed in its duty to issue advice and opinions on the US-EU Privacy Shield.

A full history of my request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.asktheeu.org/en/request/requ...

Yours faithfully,

Rachael Tackett
