Use of pesticides

The European Parliament has adopted the mandate of a special committee to look into the EU’s authorisation procedure for pesticides.

The special committee is a response to concerns raised about the risk posed by the herbicide substance glyphosate. The herbicide had its marketing licence renewed by EU member states for five years in November last year.
