Conclusion on Pesticides


The conclusions of the EFSA following the peer review of the initial risk assessments carried out by the competent authorities of the rapporteur Member State, Greece, and co‐rapporteur Member State, Germany, for the pesticide active substance clodinafop‐propargyl 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 clodinafop‐propargyl as a herbicide on wheat, rye and triticale. 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. The European Commission mandated EFSA to reconsider the acceptable operator exposure level (AOEL) setting and to update the non‐dietary exposure assessment if needed.
