Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2017/2324 renews the approval of the active substance glyphosate for five years. The renewal became valid on December 16, 2017. This came after the EU Commission's Appeal Committee decided in favor of renewing the license for glyphosate on November 27, 2017, which was different from the position of the Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Feed (PAFF) in an earlier vote. This report will explain the different positions of the most influential Member States, as well as the status of the European Citizen's initiative (ECI) on Glyphosate.
