#glyphosate use subject to restrictions

These conditions include a ban on co-formulant, POE-tallowamine from glyphosate-based products and obligations to reinforce scrutiny of pre-harvest use of glyphosate as well as to minimise its use in specific areas - public parks and playgrounds.

 

The proposal was made in parallel with recent extension of approval of the active substance for 18 months and will apply for the duration of that extension, until the European Agency for Chemical Products (ECHA) issues its opinion on glyphosate, said the Commission.
