Updated peer review concerning the risk to mammals and bees for the active substance indoxacarb
Following the completion of the pesticides peer review process in the context of the renewal of the approval of indoxacarb in accordance with Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 844/2012, EFSA identified critical areas of concern in the area of ecotoxicology, however no expert discussion on that section was held during the renewal process. Following further considerations during the decision‐making process, the European Commission asked EFSA to discuss the risk assessment for herbivorous mammals and the risk to bees in an expert meeting and provide a Statement on the outcome of the updated peer review. The critical areas of concern identified in the renewal process as regards the long‐term risk for mammals, earthworm‐eating mammals and for honeybees are retained.
