Hopefully some harder legislation will come into force when this horrible product comes up for renewal in 2022…. I really hope that the rich companies producing it don’t buy, in some way or another, more years of free use……
Status of glyphosate in the EU
Glyphosate is currently approved in the EU until 15 December 2022.
Therefore, glyphosate can be used as an active substance in Plant Protection Products (PPPs), until that date, subject to each PPP being authorised by national authorities following an evaluation of its safety.
On 10 May 2019, the Commission appointed four Member States (France, Hungary, the Netherlands and Sweden) acting jointly as ‘rapporteurs’ for the next assessment of glyphosate – this group of Member States is known as the Assessment Group on Glyphosate(AGG).
Living the dream!
