15/03/2017 - Press release

Glyphosate not classified as a carcinogen by ECHA

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.

Due to maintenance, ECHA IT-systems are currently slower than usual. We are working to resume the standard operation as soon as possible

ECHA apologises for any inconvenience caused.
