Glyphosate as the most widely used herbicide in the world,regarding the work of re-evaluation in the EU has attracted extensive attention from pesticide enterprises and relevant interest groups all over the world.


As for the re-evaluation results expected to be annouced next year, in addition to whether it will be banned and restricted in the EU, there is also a point of concern, if it's approved to continue to be used in the EU, what specifications will finally pass and whether it's consistent with current specifications?


The public review of the EU re-evaluation report began on Septemver 23 this year and was scheduled to end at the end of last month.During this period, the EU published the latest assessment report completed by the glyphosate working group and reviewed by ECHA and EFSA through official channels.


Although the contents in the report cannot present the final conclusion, clues about the evaluation result of glyphosate have been found in the report.


According to the latest assessment report, the specifications of glyphosate in the EU are likely to change, mainly focusing on the relevant impurities. Two toxicological impurities-Formic acid and triethylamine are added, and their contents in glyphosate technical must be less than 4g/kg and 2g/kg respectively. The specification of the active substance and the limit of the existing two related impurities remained unchanged.
