White Paper: Ensuring a Higher Level of Protection from Pesticides in Europe

The White Paper, coordinated by Pesticide Action Network (PAN) Europe and produced by a group of 24 experts from the field of pesticides, risk assessment, human and environmental health identifies the many shortfalls in the safety assessment of pesticides in Europe that lead to dangerous substances being used in open spaces. The analysis also proposes concrete solutions on how to improve the pesticide risk assessment in Europe in line with the mandatory requirements of EU law.

Industry wrItIng Its own rules

Research done by the Pesticide Action Network reveals that in 92% (11 out of 12) of the EU-methods for pesticide risk assessment ex- amined, it was the industry that designed and/or promoted their regulatory use. Industry is writing its own rules. This is a major con- ict of interest. The cases concern criteria and methods (risk assess- ment methodologies) on HOW the rules of the pesticide Regulation 1107/2009 should be used in decision-taking on individual pesticides. In most cases European Food Safety Authority, EFSA, drafted the guidelines on the use of these criteria and methods.

Glyphosate Dismissal - Technical Report

Regarding the manipulation of science in the toxicity evaluation of glyphosate, much has already been said: the Monsanto papers, the copy/paste affair from the dossier into the RAR and other incidents show that industry has largely influenced the analysis of available science in the dossier to guarantee the approval of its pesticide product for market use. In commissioning this report, Générations Futures and PAN Europe wanted to find out how studies showing negative effects of glyphosate are wrongfully (unscientifically) dismissed during the pesticide safety evaluation procedure.
