Decisions on approval and authorisation are based on an assessment of risks to health and the environment.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>All pesticide approvals are subject to regular review to ensure that they meet modern safety standards. The review of glyphosate is currently being carried out by the European Food Safety Authority. If the review were to provide new evidence to show that the use of glyphosate is no longer safe, the EU Commission has the power to withdraw its approval. As part of the overall evidence, the review is considering the Monograph on glyphosate published by the International Agency for Research on Cancer on 29 July 2015.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The regulatory system for pesticides is designed to ensure that there are no unacceptable risks arising from their use.
