EU law

The applicants claim that by rejecting their request for annulment of Commission Decision 2007/629/EC that did not include trifluralin in Annex I to Directive 91/414/EEC and the withdrawal of authorizations for plant protection products containing that substance, the Court has infringed Community law.
