The Scientific Dossier

On Monday 8 June 2020, The Glyphosate Renewal Group submitted to the Assessment Group on Glyphosate the scientific dossier for the safety assessment of glyphosate. This scientific dossier contains all the regulatory documents and scientific publications that are required for the renewal of the glyphosate registration under European Pesticide legislation*

A central part of the regulatory process to obtain the authorisation to use and market glyphosate in the EU is the submission of scientific evidence of its safety to competent national and European authorities.

The Glyphosate Renewal Group (GRG) submitted the Scientific Dossier to the Assessment Group on Glyphosate (AGG), made of regulatory bodies of France, Hungary, Netherlands and Sweden, for their review and risk assessment. This Dossier includes more than 100 new studies and the summaries of the studies that support glyphosate safety. In addition, it includes the relevant information from the review of 12,000 scientific public literature articles.

Those new scientific publications reinforce the evidence provided during the previous renewal process (2012 – 2017), whose outcome was the re-approval of glyphosate in the EU for five years.

The Glyphosate Renewal Group is committed to transparency and has made the lists of study reports submitted in 2012 and 2020 publicly available.
To access these reports, please refer to the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) website where you can request the necessary documents. This ensures that all stakeholders can obtain the necessary data and insights.
