According to Commission Implementing Regulation (EU)No 844/2012, associations of producers can submit joint dossiers for the renewal of the authorisation of active substances. Establishing task forces for these registration purposes is a common practice across different sectors. The GRG is not a legal entity with no legal status or head office.

The main service is managing a dedicated website providing info on glyphosate & the authorization process, access to studies & exchanges with regulatory authorities. The consultancy also supports the organization of meetings, events, outreach & advocacy activities.

    Main EU files targeted

    GRG is established for the sole purpose of seeking the renewal of the EU approval for the active substance glyphosate via the regulatory process foreseen under Regulation (EC) No. 1107/2009. While other policies and legislation such as the Farm to Fork and the Biodiversity Strategies and the Zero Pollution Package are of relevance to GRG member companies and to the debate on glyphosate, the scope of the GRG activity is restricted to the EU regulatory process covering the assessment of glyphosate.
