French term or phrase: tableau C, bande verte
Dear All

I am translating a French report on the destructive effect of weeds on ancient monuments and am having a few problems trying to find the definitions of the following phrase relating to the toxicity of glyphosate when used as a weedkiller:

"Le glyphosate, peu toxique (inscrit au tableau C, bande verte) moyennement irritant pour la peau, irritant pour les yeux."

I have so far searched on the internet for "table C, green band" without any luck and have yet to hear back from The International Council of Chemical Association or The International Chemical Safety Cards website. I hope you can point me in the right direction. Thanking you in advance for your help.

Explanation:
Helen,

"Table C, Green Band" seems to be the best choice. However, having never seen the document "telef" is referring to, you might be able to use "green bar" or "green strip" depending on what it actually looks like on the page.

I searched the web for you and found these sites which are very informative. You might have a look at these for extra info.

Hoping to be of help.

Best regards,
Debora
