The latest draft of the commission's proposal seen by Reuters calls for a nine-year reapproval of the herbicide when its license expires at the end of June. In April MEPs called for glyphosate to be reapproved for seven years rather than the 15 years originally planned.
The commission's Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food & Feed, made up of experts from the 28 EU member states, must decide by qualified majority whether to adopt the commission's proposal.
Co-formulants include tallowamine would still be banned under the draft proposal. It is unclear whether plans to ban glyphosate use in public areas and from retail use by the public are included in the proposal.
Reuters also reports Germany may abstain from voting unless its politicians can agree on a position.
