EUROPE: Draft report of the PEST Committee on the Union’s authorisation procedure for pesticides

Nine years after the adoption of Regulation (EC) No. 1107/2009 and following the recent controversy about the renewal of the active substance glyphosate, a special committee, the so-called ‘PEST’, was mandated in 2018 by the European Parliament for an analysis of the current authorisation procedure for pesticides in the Union. The final objective of the committee is to present recommendations on the procedure in order to achieve a high level of protection of human and animal health, and the environment.

A draft version of the PEST committee report has recently been made available online (please refer to the link below). A final version of the report is to be expected by the end of the year.
