Statewatch lodged a complaint with the Ombudsman regarding the European Commission failure to maintain a proper public register of its documents under Article 11 of the 2001 Regulation on 11 October 2006 - the complaint was accepted by the Ombudsman on 23 October and forwarded to the Commission for its comments. The deadline for a response was set for 31 December 2006. The Commission requested an extension until 28 February 2007 and then to 31 March 2007.

By the 23 April 2007 the Commission had still not responded so the Ombudsman wrote to them asking for a response by 31 May either with a reply or "a timetable for a reply".
