“CITIZENS FOR SCIENCE IN PESTICIDE REGULATION”
EUROPEANS JOIN FORCES calling for a higher level of protection from pesticides
European regulators are letting the citizens of the EU down by allowing the use of harmful pesticides in agriculture and public green areas based on an ‘unfit for purpose’ risk assessment regime that relies on pesticide industry generated toxicity studies.
(Brussels, 16 October 2018) At a meeting on 23-24 October 2018, European Commission Directorate General for Health will propose to EU Member States a ban on 11 pesticide active substances. Most of the active substances concerned have been available on the EU market for decades, finally the risks they pose to either human health or the environment have been deemed unacceptable by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).

PAN Europe has published today its position paper proposing how the European Commission’s legislative proposals on the New Delivery Model of the EU’s Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) should be changed to deliver on reducing EU’s dependency on pesticides.
