Scientific Advisory Panel Meeting on Glyphosate Postponed

For Release:  October 14, 2016

EPA is postponing the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act Scientific Advisory Panel (SAP) meeting scheduled for October 18-21, 2016 due to recent changes in the availability of experts for the peer review panel. Given the importance of epidemiology in the review of glyphosate’s carcinogenic potential, the Agency believes that additional expertise in epidemiology will benefit the panel and allow for a more robust review of the data. As a result, the SAP meeting on glyphosate is being postponed to later in 2016. 

The Agency will issue another announcement once the new date for the SAP meeting on glyphosate has been determined.
