On September 23rd, 2021, ECHA announced the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and ECHA have launched a 60-day consultation period on the initial scientific evaluations of glyphosate. All interested parties can comment on the draft assessment carried out by the Assessment Group of Glyphosate (AGG).
Following the consultations, which are the first step in the assessments, each Agency will consider the comments relevant for their respective process. The AGG and ECHA’s Committee for Risk Assessment (RAC) will consider the comments and data submitted regarding the harmonized classification process. These considerations will be taken forward when RAC develops its opinion on the classification of glyphosate under the CLP Regulation.
