BPA “Standstill Agreement” Extended

French notified “Labelling Decree” was extended until 4 November 2013. The extension
to the standstill agreement resulted from detailed opinions against the labelling decree

this year the UK, Spain Italy and Belgium also joined the list of countries reacting against

work with legislators”.
