In June 2016 the PPR Panel endorsed the draft text of the scientific opinion on investigations into experimental toxicological properties of plant protection products having a potential link to Parkinson’s disease and childhood leukaemia for public consultation. After endorsement, a public consultation was initiated in 2016, August the 1st, until September the 21st. The Authority received 100 comments (94 from Industry and 6 from the German BfR), covering the body of the scientific opinion and annexes. All the comments were discussed and addressed by the working group by answering to the specific comments or by changing the text of the scientific opinion where needed. The PPR Panel acknowledged the modifications made in the scientific opinion and after discussion at its 84th plenary meeting, the scientific opinion was adopted. This technical report reports all the comments received by the Authority, the answer proposed by the working group as well as the actions taken.
