Decision on the European Commission’s failure to reply to a request for review of a decision it took on a request for public access to financial documents (case 1043/2021/DL)

Dear Mr X,

You submitted complaint to the European Ombudsman against the European Commission about its failure to adopt a confirmatory decision within the time limits set out in Article 8 of Regulation 1049/2001 (reference GestDem 2021/213).

We informed the Commission of your complaint and asked it to send you a reply. The Commission has informed us that it has done so in the meantime.

The case is therefore closed with the conclusion that it has been settled.

Please note that this inquiry concerned exclusively the Commission’s failure to reply to your confirmatory application. If you are dissatisfied with the substance of the confirmatory decision, you can lodge a new complaint with the Ombudsman. There is no need to resubmit the documents already included in your file. A reference to the present complaint number will suffice.

Yours sincerely,

Tina Nilsson

Head of the Case-handling Unit
