EU court rejects haloxyfop-R and carbosulfan cases

Separate attempts by Dow AgroSciences and FMC to challenge pesticide assessments by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) have been thrown out by an EU court. The companies had contested decisions by the EU authorities in 2006 not to re-register Dow's herbicide, haloxyfop-R, and FMC's insecticide/nematicide, carbosulfan. Both were seeking annulment of the EFSA's opinions on the risk assessments of the active ingredients that were used in the review process. However, the EU Court of First Instance has ruled the claims inadmissible as the EFSA's opinion is only an interim step in the EU registration procedure.
