411 views

On 12 December 2017, after adopting the Communication, the EC replied to the European Citizens' Initiative (ECI) "Ban glyphosate and protect people and the environment from toxic pesticides" and commits to presenting a legislative proposal in 2018, to further increase the transparency and quality of studies used in the scientific assessment of substances. Following a thorough scientific assessment of all available data on glyphosate concluding that there is no link between glyphosate and cancer in humans, and a positive vote by Member States' representatives on 27 November 2017, the Commission today adopted a renewal of the approval of glyphosate for 5 years. In addition, the EC announced measures to make the process to authorise, restrict or ban the use of pesticides more transparent in the future. The Communication set out the way forward: it provided a detailed explanation of EU rules on pesticides, and announced a legislative proposal for spring 2018 to enhance the transparency, quality and independence of scientific assessments of substances.
This video shows extracts from the read-out of the weekly meeting of the Juncker Commission by Jyrki Katainen, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Jobs, Growth, Investment and Competitiveness, and Vytenis Andriukaitis, Member of the EC in charge of Health and Food Safety.
