A corrigendum was issued because following some comments received after finalisation of the EFSA conclusion, additional considerations appeared necessary regarding the maternal NOAEL from the rabbit developmental study and it was concluded that neither an ARfD nor an AAOEL should be set.The correction affects the Section on mammalian toxicology and the Section on residues where the acute consumer risk assessment has been deleted as considered obsolete. Similar changes have been made in the respective parts of the List of endpoints (Appendix A). In addition, two data gaps related to the physical/chemical properties of the formulation have been removed, however the latter does not materially affect the outcome of the risk assessment. 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 EFSA following the peer review of the initial risk assessments carried out by the competent authorities of the rapporteur Member State France and co‐rapporteur Member State Estonia for the pesticide active substance fosetyl 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 fosetyl as a fungicide on grapes, citrus and pome fruits. 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.
