Under the right of access to documents, as provided for in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting information and documents on the following matters:

2. Are any open-air tests of techniques or products using new breeding technologies or biotechnologies for pest control purposes (including new genomic techniques, precision bred organisms, gene silencing, RNAi-based pesticides, etc) being considered, planned and/or realised outside the territory of the EU and to which the EU contributes, in whole or in part (financially or otherwise) ?
