EU tackles France on pesticide trade

The European Commission has asked France to remove trade barriers on garden pesticides, rodenticides and mole poisons. It is requesting that France repeal a decree adopted in October 2004 that restricts packaging sizes and prohibits repackaging.

However, the incriminating decree is still in force, the Commission notes.
