Conclusion on Pesticides


The conclusions of EFSA following the peer review of the initial risk assessments carried out by the competent authorities of the rapporteur Member State the United Kingdom and the co‐rapporteur Member State Portugal for the pesticide active substance 1‐methylcyclopropene are reported. The context of the peer review was that required by Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 844/2012.

The reliable end points, appropriate for use in regulatory risk assessment, are presented. Missing information identified as being required by the regulatory framework is listed. Concerns are identified.
