Conclusion on the peer review of the pesticide risk assessment of the active substance benzovindiflupyr



The conclusions of the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) following the peer review of the initial risk assessments carried out by the competent authority of the rapporteur Member State France for the pesticide active substance benzovindiflupyr, and the considerations as regards the applications for maximum residue levels (MRLs), are reported. The context of the peer review was that required by Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council. The conclusions were reached on the basis of the evaluation of the representative uses of benzovindiflupyr as a fungicide on cereals (wheat, triticale, rye, barley, oats). MRLs were considered in soya beans and sugar cane. The reliable endpoints concluded as being appropriate for use in regulatory risk assessment and the proposed MRLs, derived from the available studies and literature in the dossier peer reviewed, are presented. Missing information identified as being required by the regulatory framework is listed. Concerns are identified.
