EPA Withdraws Glyphosate Interim Registration Review Decision

The EPA announced that it was withdrawing all sections of its interim registration review decisions for glyphosate after the Ninth Circuit vacated (or cancelled) the human health portions of the review in June. The move comes as Bayer, who manufactures glyphosate, gears up for additional litigation related to health issues allegedly caused by the herbicide.

Regulatory Background

  • Glyphosate (CAS RN 1071-83-6), commonly marketed as RoundUp, is an herbicide that has been in use in the United States since 1974. Glyphosate is used in a diverse number of agricultural practices to control weeds and is marketed in many different formulations to meet specific industry needs.
  • The Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) governs the registration, distribution, sale, and use of pesticides and herbicides in the U.S. Under FIFRA section 3(g), each pesticide is re-reviewed every 15 years.
