Conclusion on Pesticides


The conclusions of the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) following the peer review of the initial risk assessments carried out by the competent authority of the rapporteur Member State Greece, for the pesticide active substance flubendiamide are reported. The context of the peer review was that required by Commission Regulation (EU) No 188/2011. The conclusions were reached on the basis of the evaluation of the representative uses of flubendiamide as an insecticide on tomatoes and bell pepper but only when grown in permanent glasshouse structures. The reliable endpoints concluded as being appropriate for use in regulatory risk assessment, derived from the available studies and literature in the dossier peer reviewed, are presented. Missing information identified as being required by the regulatory framework is listed. The risk assessment for aquatic invertebrates from metabolite A 10 (NN1-0001-3-OH-hydroxy-perfluoralkyl) could not be finalised.
