Abstract

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) carried out a public consultation to receive inputs from interested parties on the draft scientific report on the establishment of cumulative assessment groups of pesticides regarding their combined effects on the thyroid. The document proposes cumulative assessment groups of pesticides to be used to perform cumulative risk assessments for two specific effects that pesticide residues may have on the thyroid.The written public consultation was open in February‐March 2019.The present report reproduces the comments received and explains how they have been considered by EFSA for finalisation of the scientific report.The valuable and detailed comments from the stakeholders were taken into account by ESFA to prepare an updated version of the scientific report. The scientific report was approved by EFSA on 26 June 2019 and is published in the EFSA Journal.
