Glyphosate: We’ll enlighten you on the situation… Finally we’ll try!

But you know it Thanks to bringing together NGOs and academic scientists, public consultation on #glyphosate’s assessment file last year shed light on scientific research. So far the appraisers have not been taken into account.

And it’s nothing because suddenly EFSA, the European Food Safety Authority, recently announced the suspension of evaluation. The world’s most widely used herbicide is classified as toxic and Possible carcinogen by WHO’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and as much as possible Endocrine disruptor with effects on reproduction Inserum, by French Medical Research.

Yesterday, EFSA Director Bernhard Url was interviewed by MEPs of the Agriculture Committee of Parliament, especially in the new calendar. LThe assessment will typically be completed by July 2023, when the herbicide’s approval expires in mid-December 2022… View the error!

According to Context Media, IFSA’s director general “called for no sightings”. ulterior motives ” ” The glyphosate dossier is completely different.”, he asserts, the four states responsible for the evaluation alone have more than 11,000 pages of reports and 3,000 pages received during public consultation. As a reminder, France is one of these states…

The success of the consultation is a positive surprise, Bernhard said the URL context. But even if we had guessed, the necessary human resources would not have been there Not even in EFSA or the states.

Our responses and questions follow this report:

  1. The advice Stakeholders for 2 months Has it not been extended? Even with 11,000 pages of files…
  2. In addition, Most of the comments received during the consultation related to hazards and classification. However, the opinion of ECHA – European Chemicals Agency – on this classification has not been postponed and is expected soon. So we asked ECHA how it was going to take into account the many comments it received.
  3. Furthermore, what does SCOPAFF mean? (This is the committee that votes on whether or not to re-authorize a pesticide and is made up of representatives from member states) Dec. will provide exemption Pending finalization of assessment procedures?

We hope the new Minister for Environmental Planning, Elizabeth Bourne, will take the lead and applies the precautionary principle provided for in the French Constitution France bans this dangerous herbicide from next year.
