Positive
The decision to grant marketing authorization for Roundup Pro 360 is cancelled; ANSES will pay €1200 to CRIIGEN. It is not necessary to ask the ECJ for a preliminary ruling.
National law

The case claims that ANSES marketing authorization for Roundup Pro 360 is unlawful because of disrepect of the precautionary principle, a lack of evaluation, an infringement of EU law and irregular labeling. Following the cancellation of the marketing authorization for Roundup Pro 360, criigen wrote to the Prime Minister, the Ministers of Agriculture, Environment and Health on 22 January 2019 to remind them that the basis of this court decision establishes a clear risk for all glyphosate-based herbicides, and in particular all Roundup herbicides, and to ask them to order the cancellation of the authorisations for all these herbicides as soon as possible. Without a satisfactory answer within 2 months, criigen may go to the court again on this issue.
