Global Network Releases Updated List of Highly Hazardous Pesticides

Titelbild PAN International List of Highly Hazardous Pesticides Pesticide Action Network (PAN) International released an updated version of its List of Highly Hazardous Pesticides (HHPs) to coincide with a key meeting in Stockholm of the Strategic Approach for International Chemicals Management (SAICM) process. The expanded list now includes 306 chemicals.
These hazardous pesticides (HHPs) threaten people and the environment around the world. The global community must act to stop the continuing exposure of people and the planet to these HHPs. PAN calls on the global community for an internationally binding treaty on pesticides.

European authorities violated own rules to conclude glyphosate is not carcinogenic

New peer-reviewed analysis shows that EFSA and ECHA twice watered down the statistical strength of evidence linking glyphosate with tumour increases
The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) were only able to conclude that the pesticide active ingredient glyphosate is not a carcinogen by inconsistently applying and even directly violating the applicable regulations and guidelines. This is the outcome of a new peer-reviewed analysis published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health.
The new analysis shows that if the European authorities had properly applied their own benchmarks and "weight of evidence" approach, they would have inevitably concluded that glyphosate is carcinogenic. The analysis includes a science-based rebuttal of ECHA's claim that it adequately addressed concerns about how it applied statistical analyses and the weight of evidence approach.

The livestock industry has a special responsibility in the fight against antibiotic resistance and against the environmental impacts of veterinary pharmaceuticals. The background paper gives an overview on the issue, shows that pharmaceutical residues have become a global environmental problem and highlights the need for a change in animal production.

On International Day of No Pesticide Use, PAN International Urges Move Towards Agroecology
December 3, 2017

December 3 is the anniversary of the worst peacetime chemical disaster in history. Twenty-seven tons of lethal gases leaked from Union Carbide's pesticide factory in Bhopal, India on this date in 1984, immediately killing thousands of people and poisoning half a million others.
Pesticide Action Network (PAN) International, which marks its 35th anniversary this year, is a global organization with five regional centers around the world. PAN honors the memory of the Bhopal victims every year with an international "Day of No Pesticide Use," an annual reminder that agricultural chemicals are harming communities around the world every day.
PAN International Press Release dated 03.12.2017
Instead of a phase-out Glyphosate was approved for another 5 years in the EU! On Monday, 27 November 2017, at the appeal committee of EU governments, a qualified majority of Member States voted in favour to the Commission's proposal to renew glyphosate authorisation for 5 years. Despite over a million of European Citizens asking to ban glyphosate, and the European Parliament proposing to phase-out its use in agriculture and place immediate bans for certain uses that result in higher risk, 18 Member States voted to keep this pesticide in the market for another 5 years. more

What are Highly Hazardous Pesticides (HHPs)?

Cover What are Highly Hazardous Pesticides (HHPs)? Meanwhile more than a decade ago an international UN-level debate about a 'progressive ban of highly hazardous pesticides' (HHPs) was started - however, without defining the term 'highly hazardous pesticide' clearly.
The global Pesticide Action Network (PAN) – supported by more than 500 organisations from more than 100 countries fights for a ban of such pesticides, and PAN was the first organisation globally defining this term. The PAN International List of Highly Hazardous Pesticides shows which pesticides are highly hazardous and it explains how the list was generated by PAN.
For all those, who are interested in this important topic but who didn’t have the time to learn a bit more about the issue, we have published a 1-pager for a quick view at this issue. Download
