Public consultations planner

The list below includes details of all the public consultations EFSA expects to hold over the coming months. The information provided is subject to change in line with EFSA’s scientific calendar. The planner includes consultations on draft assessment reports (DARs) and renewal assessment reports (RARs) prepared by Member States under EU legislation covering active substances in pesticides. In the case of active substances, the start of the commenting period might be postponed because Member States have not submitted the assessment reports yet or EFSA has received several DARs and RARs at the same time. Consultations are confirmed only when announced on the EFSA website.
