Since the Court's judgment in Gravier, (4) it is well settled that, as access to education leading to professional qualifications is within the scope of the EC Treaty, nationals of the Member States are entitled to equal treatment in respect of all conditions governing such access.

As the Court has held on various occasions (44) and as all parties having submitted written and oral observations state, inequality of treatment can be justified only if it is based on objective considerations independent of the nationality of the persons concerned and it is proportionate to the legitimate aim of the national provisions.

LUXEMBOURG - The European Court of Justice has ruled in a case referred from Britain's High Court that companies may sell glyphosate-based herbicides in Britain without submitting new research data to agriculture authorities.
Despite arguments from Monsanto to the contrary, the court said chemical companies could piggy back on Monsanto's research submitted in 1974 because glyphosates were not included in the list of substances regulated by European legislation in 1998, when this case was initiated.
Monsanto demonstrated to the court that Belgium, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, Finland and Sweden were adopting that approach successfully.

It is for the national court to ascertain whether those conditions are fulfilled, since it is incumbent on the Member State or the undertaking which seeks to rely on Article 90(2) of the Treaty to show that the conditions for application of that provision are fulfilled.
