EFSA Assessment Conclusions and Countermeasures
On 26 July 2023, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) published its Conclusions on the assessment of the impact of glyphosate on the health of humans, animals, and the environment, which did not identify any critical areas of concern. The identified data gaps can be addressed through risk mitigation measures and conditions in the renewal approval.
The Commission has stated that in the case of glyphosate, the data gaps can be addressed through risk mitigation measures and conditions in the renewal approval. The Glyphosate Renewal Group (GRG) is confident that all of these can be addressed at the member states level and with ongoing studies.

What Happens Next?
As the next step, the European Commission will put forward a renewal report and a draft regulation to the Member States proposing a renewal or non-renewal of the authorization of Glyphosate, based on EFSA’s Conclusions and the Renewal Assessment Report (RAR) produced by the Assessment Group (AGG), the rapporteur member states.
The representatives of the EU Member States will then vote on the draft regulation in the Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Feed (SCoPAFF).
What kind of draft approval will the EC draw up? Could a repeat of the inconclusive vote by member states be expected? What is the ultimate fate of Glyphosate in the EU?
King Quenson will continue to follow the latest developments in the EU's review of Glyphosate. Welcome to continue to pay attention.
