Dear readers,
Of course this month was marked by the Brexit but it is too early to see all the consequences that this will have on the business. But for sure it is a new challenge for all of us.

For the rest this month was marked in Europe by the extension of the approval period of Glyphosate, by the presentation of the draft regulation on Endocrine Disruptors criteria and by the release of the new version of the guidance document on micro-organisms.

In France, e-phy open data were online, approvals for PPP containing Glyphosate and POE-tallowamine were withdrawn, Anses issued 2 memos on trials and on the composition of renewal dossiers and at last a call for proposals was issued for Ecophyto II.

We summarised this information for you throughout articles that you will find below.
We hope you enjoy reading these notes and stay at your disposal for regulatory advice and dossier drafting.
