Webinar on revision 4 of the Pesticide Residues Intake Model (PRIMo v4)


In the safety assessments of EU maximum residues levels (MRLs) for pesticides, or proposals for MRLs, the chronic and acute dietary consumer exposure to pesticide residues is estimated by using a calculation model developed by EFSA (Pesticide Residue Intake Model – PRIMo). EFSA is currently developing revision 4 of the model, which will be a new web-based tool, as opposed to the current Excel-based spreadsheets. The new online tool will introduce a new user interface and various improvements, such as the integration of new consumption data and allowing for more detailed exposure results.

A public consultation on the beta tool, together with the accompanying report, will be launched in March 2023 on the Connect.EFSA website. This consultation aims at gathering feedback from all interested stakeholders on possible enhancements of the final version.

Objectives of the event

The webinar will be held concurrently to the public consultation, with the objectives:

  • to briefly present the new background databases and how they are used in the calculations;
  • to introduce a live demo presenting the workflow and the new features of the tool;
  • to address questions from the participants.

Who should attend?

The webinar is intended for all interested stakeholders and future users of the tool.
