Your letter on glyphosate Ref. BU/ct-OC-2023 - 29763357
Thank you for your reply to our letter from 13 July on EFSA's main findings on glyphosate. Unfortunately, we regret to observe that EFSA has not responded to the main points from our letter. Our legal, scientific and regulatory arguments remain to be addressed. We feel that the lack of will of EFSA to dialogue with us on the content of its work is unacceptable, and will unfortunately inevitably increase the distrust in the institution.

Dear Dr. Lysimachou and Dr. Dermine,
I refer to your letter received on 13 July 2023, of which EFSA acknowledged receipt on the same day.
