Glyphosate conclusion to be published next week
EFSA will publish the EU peer review of the active substance glyphosate on 12 November in line with previous communication on EFSA’s website.
Peer review in the EU
In the EU, active substances used in plant protection products are evaluated or re-evaluated using a phased approach.
First, an initial draft risk assessment report is produced by a designated rapporteur Member State (RMS). In the case of glyphosate the RMS is Germany. The report is peer-reviewed by EFSA, which sends its conclusion to the European Commission. The Commission then decides whether or not to include the substance in the EU’s list of approved active substances. Find out more here.
