The European Commission has approved the 10-year renewal of glyphosate, a controversial herbicide.
The decision aligns with EU legislation, triggered when a qualified majority isn’t reached. The renewal comes with new conditions, such as banning pre-harvest use and implementing measures to protect non-target organisms.
Member States oversee product market access, with each authorization requiring review post-renewal. The Implementing Regulation’s publication is anticipated in the Official Journal of the EU.
