National law

UIPP asks the judge in chambers to suspend the execution of the decree prohibiting the use of active substances of the neonicotinoid family (No. 2018-675 of 30 July 2018). The application is dismissed on 10/29/2018 pending judgment on the merits (424627). On 6/28/2019, the Council of State referred questions to the CJEU for a preliminary ruling (424617) concerning the conformity with Union law of the measures taken by France to ban neonicotinoids (C-514/19). On 10/8/2020 the CJEU held that France was entitled to take this ban. On 7/12/2021 the Council of State rejects the requests of the producers' associations.
