Renewal Assessment Report

The glyphosate draft Renewal Assessment Report (dRAR) is the comprehensive outcome of the first step of the scientific evaluation for the renewal of approval in the EU. For more details please refer to the Assessment Group on Glyphosate’s (AGG) summary document available on their websites.

The risk assessment for active substances is carried out by the competent authorities of the Member States and by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). This process is formalised and based on scientific methods as laid down in the applicable guidance documents and scientific opinions of EFSA. The dRAR and Harmonized Classification and Labelling report (CLH-report) for glyphosate prepared jointly by the AGG are starting points for an EU-wide consultation and peer review procedure managed by EFSA and the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA), respectively.

On June 15th 2021, a dRAR and a CLH dossier were sent to EFSA and ECHA who will publish the reports and organise public consultations in line with their respective regulatory frameworks.

Meanwhile, the public consultation started, and any interested person can contribute on the EFSA and ECHA websites.

The dRAR documents are the basis for providing science-based comments, and these documents are available at the EFSA and ECHA websites for download.

The dRAR documents are also provided here, for transparency and easy access, but comments in the frame of the public consultation can only be submitted via the EFSA and ECHA websites, so please visit these websites to contribute to the consultation.
