Renewal of Glyphosate authorisation in the EU
On Monday 27 November 2017, EU Member States voted to renew the approval of Glyphosate for a period of 5 years: 18 countries voted in favour, 9 against and 1 abstained.
So far, Germany has abstained but has finally voted in favour of the renewal proposal, thereby achieving the 65% required by a qualified majority.
As a reminder, the end of the authorization of glyphosate was scheduled for December 15,2017 according to regulation (EU) N°2016/1313.
Despite this verdict of the European Commission, France plans to ban Glyphosate on its territory as soon as alternatives have been found and those within 3 years.
Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2017/2324 of the Commission renewing the authorization of glyphosate until 12/15/2022 was published on 12/15/2017.
