Farm to Fork Strategy: Commission publishes roadmap for revision of rules on sustainable use of pesticides

The European Commission yesterday published a roadmap for the evaluation of the EU legislation on the sustainable use of pesticides and an inception impact assessment for the possible revision of this legislation. This initiative is one of the ambitious actions on pesticides announced by the Farm to Fork Strategy and responds to the EU’s Green Deal commitment to reduce the use and risk of chemical pesticides. Citizens, experts and stakeholders are invited to share their ideas and suggestions until 7 August 2020 to feed into the work on the legislative revision. The roadmap and further information is available here.
