APPLICATION, in essence, for suspension of operation of EMA Decision EMA/24685/2013 of 15 January 2013, granting a third party access to certain documents containing information submitted as part of an application for authorisation to place the medicinal product Esbriet on the market, pursuant to Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 30 May 2001 regarding public access to European Parliament, Council and Commission documents (OJ 2001 L 145, p. 43), inasmuch as that information is not yet within the public domain.


1        By letter lodged at the Registry of the General Court on 14 May 2014, the applicants informed the Court in accordance with Article 99 of the Rules of Procedure that they wished to discontinue proceedings and requested that each party should bear its own costs, including those incurred in relation to the appeal proceedings relating to the application for interim measures.

2        By letter lodged at the Registry of the Court on 19 May 2014, the defendant informed the Court that it had no objections to the application for discontinuance and confirmed that each party should bear its own costs.

3        By letter lodged at the Registry of the Court on 19 May 2014, the intervener informed the Court that it had no observations on the application for discontinuance. It made no application in relation to costs.

4        The application for interim measures will therefore be removed from the register. As regards the costs, it is appropriate in the context of the procedure for interim measures that these should be reserved.

On those grounds,

THE PRESIDENT OF THE GENERAL COURT

hereby orders:

1.      Case T‑73/13 R-RENV is removed from the register of the General Court.

2.      The costs are reserved.
