Glyphosate

La demande est réussie.

Dear Health and Food Safety,

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

On the topic of glyphosate, all correspondence (including emails), the list of meetings with detailed minutes and any other reports of such meetings between DG SANTE’s officials (including the Commissioner and his Cabinet members) and representatives of the following actors:

-Glyphosate Task Force
-European Crop Care Association (ECCA)
-European Crop Protection Association (ECPA)
-Monsanto
-Hume Brophy
-CropLife America
-American Chamber of Commerce to the European Union (AmCham EU)
-US Mission to the EU
-USA Government or US goverment bodies or representatives

Or any organisation or consultancy firm representing any of these actors

between 15 August 2015 and now.

Should my request be denied wholly or partially, please explain the denial or all deletions referring to specific exemptions in the regulation. Also I expect the partial release of documents, in case of partial exemption according to article 4.6.

Do not hesitate to get back to me should you need any further information which could facilitate your research.

Yours faithfully,

Nina Holland

Dear Health and Food Safety,

Thank you for sending the documents.

I have two questions:

In document 8 (minutes of the BTO meeting SANTE/GTF held on on 13 January
2016), it is stated „TF agreed to submit in coming days additional information as
regards market and their argumentaire on IARC.“

No such document or was listed however. Was any further information submitted by GTF until 1 April 2016?

I would also like to officially request the disclosure of any further correspondence between DG SANTE and GTF up until now.

In document 15 it is stated "If a reading room is agreeable, there will be a need to
communicate on the approach chosen and agreed in this exceptional case,
and EFSA Communication unit will coordinate with SANTE Communication
unit. Industry may do their own, but independent, communication.“

I would therefore like to officially request any follow-up communication within the Commission, with EFSA and/or with industry on the issue of a reading room, and on the issue of communication around it, up until now.

Yours faithfully,

Nina Holland
