Negative
The disputed order is cancelled.

Plaintiffs request the suspension of the execution of the Royal Order of 5 September 2001 regarding the placing on the market and use of biocidal products. On June 19, 2002, the judge grants the plaintiffs' request. Irrespective of the questions of admissibility of the claims, the judge cancels the disputed order on the grounds that the Belgian State did not sufficiently motivate the urgent nature of the procedure for the elaboration of the contested order.
