* Case C-316/01, Glawischnig, ECJ 12 June 2003

The Court ruled on the interpretation of the Council Directive 90/313/EEC on the freedom of access to information on the environment. Article 2(a) is to be interpreted as meaning that the name of the manufacturer and the product description of foodstuffs which have been the subject of administrative measures for controlling compliance with Regulation 1139/98 concerning the compulsory indication [in] the labelling of certain foodstuffs produced from genetically modified organisms, the number of administrative penalties imposed following those measures, and the producers and products concerned by such penalties do not constitute information relating to the environment within the meaning of this provision.
