EU court rules out quick action on methomyl

The EU Court of First Instance has rejected DuPont's application for a suspension of the EU phase-out procedure for the insecticide, methomyl. DuPont had asked for the interim measure to be imposed until the Court decides on its main lawsuit seeking an annulment of the European Commission's decision not to re-register the active ingredient (Agrow No 538, p 12). DuPont claims that the re-registration decision was based on an incomplete risk assessment.
