ECJ rejects bid for review of MRL rules

The European Court of Justice (ECJ) has ruled against a bid to force the European Commission to review rules on EU pesticide residues. The Court has followed the opinion of its advocate general, issued last year, and has set aside a previous judgement by its General Court that would have allowed environmentalist groups to request internal reviews of Commission Regulations. The decision is based on the view that the groups’ use of the Aarhus Convention to request a review was not legally valid.
