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 the Netherlands, for the pesticide active substance Streptomyces lydicus WYEC 108 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 Streptomyces lydicus WYEC 108 as a fungicide on vegetables, seeds, turf grass, ornamentals, cut flowers, bulbs and pot plants. 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. Concerns are identified in relation to the risk assessments for aquatic organisms, soil-dwelling organisms and groundwater exposure assessments for secondary metabolites not being finalised.
