A corrigendum was issued for what concern the aquatic assessment for tolclofos‐methyl. Some of the results were wrongly reported for representative use in ornamental crops for protected structures, the results of the numbers of relevant FOCUS scenario were corrected in particular in Table 5 page 18 and LoEP (i.e. D4 scenario with 10 m deposition). To avoid confusion, the older version has been removed from the EFSA Journal, but is available on request, as is a version showing all the changes made.

Conclusion on Pesticides


The conclusions of the EFSA following the peer review of the initial risk assessments carried out by the competent authorities of the rapporteur Member State, Sweden, and co‐rapporteur Member State, Denmark, for the pesticide active substance tolclofos‐methyl are reported. The context of the peer review was that required by Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 844/2012. The conclusions were reached on the basis of the evaluation of the representative uses of tolclofos‐methyl as a fungicide on potatoes, lettuce and ornamentals. 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.
