Glyphosate not classified as a carcinogen by ECHA

ECHA/PR/17/06

ECHA’s Committee for Risk Assessment (RAC) agrees to maintain the current harmonised classification of glyphosate as a substance causing serious eye damage and being toxic to aquatic life with long-lasting effects. RAC concluded that the available scientific evidence did not meet the criteria to classify glyphosate as a carcinogen, as a mutagen or as toxic for reproduction.

Helsinki, 15 March 2017 – RAC assessed glyphosate’s hazardousness against the criteria in the Classification, Labelling and Packaging Regulation. They considered extensive scientific data in coming to their opinion.

The committee concluded that the scientific evidence available at the moment warrants the following classifications for glyphosate according to the CLP Regulation:

  • Eye Damage 1; H318 (Causes serious eye damage)
  • Aquatic Chronic 2; H411 (Toxic to aquatic life with long lasting effects)

Luke | Assessing the effects of neonicotinoids on honeybees in Finland

Jointly conducted by MTT Agrifood Research Finland and the Finnish Food Safety Authority Evira, the Neomehi project is studying how neonicotinoid-based insecticides used in the cultivation of spring oilseed rape and spring turnip rape plants affect honey bees (Apis mellifera). Based on the first test results, the researchers believe that the use of neonicotinoids may not cause acute harm to bees.
Launched in spring 2013 by MTT Agrifood Research Finland and the Finnish Food Safety Authority Evira, the Neomehi project is studying the effects on honey bees of neonicotinoids used in oilseed cultivation.
