ClientEarth and another v European Food Safety Authority (EFSA)

European Union – Community institutions. The Court of Justice of the European Union set aside a judgment of the General Court of the European Union in so far as the General Court had thereby dismissed the action brought by ClientEarth and Pesticide Action Network Europe (PAN Europe) for: (i) annulment of initially, a decision of the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), refusing an application for access to certain working documents relating to a guidance document, prepared by EFSA, for the benefit of applicants for authorisation to place plant protection products on the market; and subsequently (ii) for annulment of EFSA's decision, withdrawing the earlier decision and granting the applicants access to all the information requested, save for the names of certain external experts.
