The European Ombudsman has concluded that the Agency adequately communicated with a citizen in handling a complaint regarding its opinion on glyphosate.
Based on the available documentation and without the need to consult ECHA, the Ombudsman found that ECHA had adequately communicated with the complainant and therefore complied with its duty to provide information.
