Our Commitment to Transparency

The Glyphosate Renewal Group is committed to comply and contribute to all relevant aspects of the EU procedure to re-assess and re-approve glyphosate in the EU. The Glyphosate Renewal Group will do so in a factual, scientific and transparent way.

To respond to the demand for greater transparency and inform on the process and all its constitutive elements, the Glyphosate Renewal Group gives access to the scientific dossier submitted in 2012 and to the new studies that were added to the scientific evidence presented in 2012 and be part of the new dossier submitted in June 2020. The Glyphosate Renewal Group proactively meets the new provisions of the EU General Food Law before the legislation comes into force on 27 March 2021.

In doing so, the Glyphosate Renewal Group makes publicly available the list of new studies being conducted, the minutes of the meetings with regulatory bodies involved in the re-assessment of glyphosate; i.e. the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), and the Assessment Group on Glyphosate (AGG). The Assessment Group consists of the following regulatory authorities of four European Member States: ANSES (France), Nebih (Hungary), ctgb (the Netherlands) and KEMI (Sweden).

The application for the glyphosate renewal, including the list of new studies to fulfil current regulatory requirements, is made publicly available on this website, as well as the feedback correspondence on the application from the Assessment Group on Glyphosate (AGG).

Furthermore, easy access to the public part (i.e. except confidential business information) of the re-approval dossier submitted in 2012 is also provided on this website. Full study reports, submitted at the time and where the Glyphosate Renewal Group has access and disclosure rights, are accessible to interested persons via a simple online ordering procedure (with the minor exception of documents containing confidential, production and source related information, and documents which are not safety-relevant).

Following submission, the entire public part of the 2020 glyphosate dossier, including new study reports, is made accessible via this website (with the minor exception of those documents containing certain production information, not safety-relevant).

Disclaimer: To protect data privacy and in accordance with existing law, all personal information and testing facilities of vertebrate studies, will have been redacted from the documents made public by the Glyphosate Renewal Group.
