Austria: Parliament Adopts Partial Ban on Glyphosate

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   AU2021-0001

After two unsuccessful attempts within the past two years to totally ban glyphosate, the Austrian parliament voted unanimously on a partial ban of glyphosate. This amendment of the Austrian pesticide law bans the use of glyphosate on so-called “sensitive” areas and for private use. Professional use of glyphosate including most applications in agriculture remains allowed. Unlike its earlier efforts to fully ban the substance, Austria does not anticipate any objections from the EU Commission to this partial ban.
