EFSA consults on draft guidance for evaluating studies to measure pesticide degradation time in soil

EFSA has launched a public consultation on draft guidance to carry out a highly specialised aspect of environmental exposure assessment for pesticides. The proposed methodology helps scientists to evaluate studies that measure the time required for 50 % of pesticides to disappear from soil or water due to degradation alone. All stakeholders and interested parties are invited to comment on the document through an online public consultation that runs until 19 September 2013.
