France condemned to pay EUR 10 million

Fact: France failed to comply swiftly with the obligations concerning genetically modified organisms (GMOS).

Summary: "In 2004,  on the Commission’s application, the Court of Justice held that France had infringed Community law by failing to transpose into national law, by 17 October 2002, the directive on
the deliberate release into the environment of genetically modified organisms (GMOs). After the Commission had instigated proceedings before the Court for failure to comply with that
judgment, the French authorities adopted, on 15 and 19 March 2007, substantive national transposition measures and, subsequently, the Law of 25 June 2008 on GMOs."

Extract: "Due to the circumstances of this case, the lump sum to be paid is set at EUR 10 million".
