EFSA has launched a public consultation on its revised draft guidance document for assessing the risk to aquatic organisms from plant protection products. The guidance outlines a tiered assessment procedure and proposals on how to link effects to exposure evaluations for aquatic organisms living in the water column of edge-of-field surface waters. All stakeholders and interested parties are invited to comment on the guidance document through an online public consultation that runs until 11 February 2013.
