EU delays re-approval for weedkiller glyphosate – EurActiv.com

The EU on Wednesday (18 May) failed to agree on the re-approval of weedkiller glyphosate in Europe amid fresh fears the product could cause cancer.

This is the second time that regulators from the 28 EU member states, in addition to the European Commission, have delayed their decision on rolling over the approval for glyphosate amid fierce lobbying from both sides of the issue.“

The Commission has made clear that it would not proceed without a solid qualified majority (QM) of member states,” a spokeswoman for the Commission said in an email.

“Since it was obvious that no qualified majority would have been reached, a vote was not held,” the spokeswoman added.

Glyphosate was first used in the 1970s as the active ingredient in the Monsanto herbicide Roundup, which is now one of the world’s most popular weedkillers.
