Conclusion on Pesticides


The conclusions of EFSA following the peer review of the initial risk assessment carried out by the competent authority of the rapporteur Member State, the Netherlands, for the pesticide active substance cyflumetofen are reported. The context of the peer review was that requested by the European Commission following the submission and evaluation of confirmatory mammalian toxicology data. The conclusions were reached on the basis of the evaluation of the representative uses of cyflumetofen as an acaricide on ornamental crops, nursery trees, perennial ornamentals and public greens. 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. Concerns are identified.
