Abstract

The current European Union reapproval procedure for glyphosate is developed as a case study testing whether the 12 precautionary lessons identified by European Environment Agency research as needed to avoid unnecessary harm to society have been incorporated into current regulatory approaches. The working hypothesis that those lessons have not been learnt to a significant degree could not be falsified.
