— the protection of operators and amateur users,

— the risk to terrestrial vertebrates and non-target terrestrial plants,

— the risk to diversity and abundance of non-target terrestrial arthropods and vertebrates via trophic interactions,

compliance of pre-harvest uses with good agricultural practices.

Conditions of use shall include risk mitigation measures, where appropriate.

Member States shall ensure that use of plant protection products containing glyphosate is minimised in areas used by the general public or by vulnerable groups.

Member States shall ensure equivalence between the specifications of the technical material, as commercially manufactured, and those of the test material used in the toxicological studies.

Member States shall ensure that plant protection products containing glyphosate do not contain the co-formulant POE-tallowamine (CAS No 61791-26-2).
