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.

GRG Position on Grass Residue Decline Data for Chronic Wild Mammal Risk Assessment

In the 2021 dRAR for glyphosate, the RMS requested that the grass residue decline data, used to refine the level of residues anticipated on dietary items for the chronic wild mammal risk assessment, may need to be re-assessed using current kinetics analysis approaches. The GRG performed a kinetics re-analysis of the data from 22 sets of grass residue trials on which the mean DT50 value of 2.8 days is based as presented in the EFSA (2015) conclusion on glyphosate.
