Glyphosate to DG SANTE

We're waiting for Nina Holland to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Health and Food Safety,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

1. Any documents between January 2016 and now, including briefings, reports, correspondence (email or other), where the active substance glyphosate is concerned or mentioned, between DG SANTE (Commissioner, cabinet and officials) and officials/representatives of:

- Monsanto or any other company producing glyphosate
- Glyphosate Task Force
- Hume Brophy or any other firm representing industry with an interest in glyphosate
- COPA-COGECA and its members
- European Conservation Agriculture Federation
- European Crop Protection Association (ECPA)
- the US administration including agencies such as the EPA and the FDA
- the German government
- the German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment BfR

2. A list of meetings, as well as agendas and minutes or any other reports of such meetings, also between January 2016 and now, where the active substance glyphosate is concerned or mentioned, between DG SANTE (Commissioner, cabinet and officials) and officials/representatives of the entities mentioned in the list under 1.

I kindly urge you to not apply a rigid interpretation of the clause on commercial secrets. Should this request be denied wholly or partially, please explain the denial or all deletions referring to specific exemptions in the regulation.

I look forward to a positive consideration of this request.

Yours faithfully,

Nina Holland
