French Ag Ministry increases transparency
The French Ministry of Agriculture has published all necessary information about the approval process of plant protection products on its website. It will also elaborate the procedure followed by the national agency for health security, the Anses, and the Ministry's directorate general of food, the Dgal. The idea behind the move is to increase transparency. The Ministry says that in recent years, 1,800 to 2,400 approval, modification or withdrawal decisions have been taken annually by the Dgal.
