GRG Position on Scientific Topics
The Glyphosate Renewal Group (GRG) has submitted a 180,000-page dossier to the European Food Safety Authority for consideration by the Rapporteur Member State (RMS) Assessment Group on Glyphosate (AGG), consisting of France, Hungary, The Netherlands, and Sweden, seeking renewal of the active substance glyphosate.
The RMS has evaluated this dossier and released a consultation version of their assessment (the draft Renewal Assessment Report: dRAR).
As part of the GRG’s transparency commitment, we provide brief summaries of different elements of the dRAR, including indications of how the GRG is intending to respond to the topics raised by the RMS, where appropriate.
During the public consultation in the period of September – November 2021 Member States, registrants and the general public have commented on the dRAR for glyphosate. An additional information request was received from EFSA on 14th March, 2022 in accordance with Article 13 (3) of Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 844/2012. The GRG is providing updated summary documents in the area of toxicology, ecotoxicology, environmental fate and residues, containing information pertinent to the risk assessment and building upon the transparency documents previously uploaded here.
