Glyphosate Task Force: Discussion on EU Re-Approval of Glyphosate Continues
The Glyphosate Task Force (GTF) understands that Member States discussed the re-approval of glyphosate during the Standing Committee meeting of March 7th and 8th, but that no vote has taken place yet.
Richard Garnett, chair of the Glyphosate Task Force, said that “the European approval process for pesticides is rigorous and transparent. In the case of glyphosate, this has been one of the most comprehensive and thorough evaluations of an active substance ever. More than 90,000 pages and more than 3,200 peer-reviewed publications were considered in the assessment by Member States and European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). This has been a rigorous, four-year process involving scores of experts on consumer and environmental safety from all 28 of the European Union’s Member States”.
The GTF recognises the importance of discussions between the European Commission and Member States on the draft review report regarding the re-approval of glyphosate at EU level. However the GTF expects that this process will go forward in the weeks ahead and that a vote of Member States regarding the re-approval of glyphosate will take place in due course.
