EU court dismisses case on confidential agchem data

An EU court has dismissed a lawsuit relating to the confidentiality of information on agrochemical active ingredients. The ruling is based on the court’s view that the case is inadmissible because it did not challenge the correct author of the contested decision. As a result, the outcome fails to settle the issue of the type of information that can be considered as confidential. Last year, during an interim ruling on the case, a judge noted that the lawsuit had raised “complex untested questions” on the publication of confidential data in assessment reports of agrochemicals.
