EFSA explains the scientific assessment of glyphosate

EFSA and EU Member States carried out a risk assessment and peer review
thereof for the active substance glyphosate.

It is the most comprehensive and transparent assessment of a pesticide that
EFSA and the EU Member States have ever carried out, taking into account
thousands of studies related to human and animal health and the environment,
and involving dozens of scientists from EFSA and national authorities across
Europe. Draft documents related to the risk assessment have been made
publicly available at different stages of the process.
