Mid term review of EU Ombudsman's verdict regarding DG SANTE's pesticide decision-taking methods

PAN Europe in 2013 submitted a complaint to the EU Ombudsman regarding the massive (mis)use of a so-called 'confirmatory data' regime in the approval of pesticides. In case of observed high risks for the environment (birds, mammals, arthropods, fish, etc.) industry was granted the opportunity to submit additional information to show that those high risk do not exist, AFTER approval of their chemical. And industry was granted the same opportunity in case of lacking data, even if the data were a legal condition (data requirement) for approval.
