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 United Kingdom, for the pesticide active substance gamma-cyhalothrin 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 gamma-cyhalothrin as an insecticide on wheat and barley. 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. Critical areas of concern are identified as regards the long-term risk assessment for wild mammals and the risk assessment for aquatic organisms.
