Pesticides: simplified procedure for exchange of active substance documents

Draft Assessment Reports, Renewal Assessment Reports and sanitisation (i.e. redaction) of background documents for the EU peer review of active substances are already shared electronically among EFSA and its stakeholders.

From today, applicants can use their own user name and password to access an online platform for sharing these documents with EFSA. This initiative will streamline the process and increase efficiency in the exchange of files with applicants.

Within six months EFSA will review this new procedure and all feedback received to further fine-tune the process if needed.
