Maarten Hillebrandt

Dear Secretariat General of the European Commission,

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:

The 31st to the 60th final decisions by the European Commission in confirmatory application procedures under Regulation 1049/2001 issued in 2020. (An initial request for access to the first 30 confirmatory application decisions produced in 2020 was already made in a previous request.)

The purpose for my request is academic research.

As with my previous similar requests, explicitly excluded from my request are:

- Any personal data contained in these decision documents - which means that the Commission need not spend any time contacting third parties, and that I agree to the Commission pre-emptively suppressing the contents of any such sections.
- Any related documents - I am exclusively interested in the documents issuing decisions and the legal justification contained therein.

Moreover, where English-language versions of the documents are available, I seek access merely to the version in that language.

Since the current request is nearly identical in scope to my previous requests, I trust that no search for a fair solution procedure will be needed, so that the request can be handled in the shortest possible time frame.

In case any of the documents included in my request were already proactively published, I kindly request you to refer me to the precise URL at which they can be located.

My postal address is:
Dr. Maarten Hillebrandt
University of Helsinki
Faculty of Law
Eric Castrén Institute
Yliopistonkatu 3
00101 Helsinki
Finland

Although I kindly request you to send all relevant documents also in digital form to my email address: [email address].

Yours faithfully,
Maarten Hillebrandt

Dear Sir,

Thank you for your e-mail of 02/03/2021. We hereby acknowledge receipt of
your application for access to documents, which was registered on
02/03/2021 under reference number GESTDEM 2021/1182.

In accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding public access to
European Parliament, Council and Commission documents, your application
will be handled within 15 working days.

The time limit will expire on 23/03/2021. In case this time limit needs to
be extended, you will be informed in due course.

You have lodged your application via a private third-party website, which
has no link with any institution of the European Union.
Therefore, the European Commission cannot be held accountable for any
technical issues or problems linked to the use of this system.

Please note that the private third party running the AsktheEU.org website
is responsible and accountable for the processing of your personal data
via that website, and not the Commission.
For further information on your rights, please refer to the third party’s
privacy policy.

We understand that the third party running the AsktheEU.org website
usually publishes the content of applicants’ correspondence with the
Commission on that website. This includes the personal data that you may
have communicated to the Commission (e.g. your private postal address).

Similarly, the third party publishes on that website any reply that the
Commission will send to the email address of the applicants generated by
the AsktheEU.org website.

If you do not wish that your correspondence with the Commission is
published on a private third-party website such as AsktheEU.org, you can
provide us with an alternative, private e-mail address for further
correspondence. In that case, the Commission will send all future
electronic correspondence addressed to you only to that private address,
and it will use only that private address to reply to your request. You
should still remain responsible to inform the private third-party website
about this change of how you wish to communicate with, and receive a reply
from, the Commission.

For information on how we process your personal data visit our page

Yours faithfully,
