The plaintiff requests that the court finds that EFSA violated the Aarhus Convention by failing to recognise its obligation to provide information concerning emissions into the environment. On March 7, the General Court annuls the contested decision in so far as it refused to disclose the whole of the requested studies, with the exception of the names and signatures of the persons mentioned in those studies. On the same day, the court issues an identical order in case T-329/17.
