On 15 November, the Appeal Committee did not reach a decision on the European Commission’s proposal for an extension of the current approval of glyphosate by one year.

The GRG is confident that the current glyphosate approval will ultimately be extended, as proposed by the European Commission, to allow sufficient time for the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) to conclude the ongoing scientific evaluation, as provided for in Regulation (EC) No 1107/20091, concerning the placing of plant protection products on the market.

Every other plant protection active substance that has needed this type of temporary administrative extension in the EU has been granted the extension.
