The conclusions of EFSA following the peer review of the initial risk assessments carried out by the competent authorities of the rapporteur Member State Belgium and co‐rapporteur Member State Germany for the pesticide active substance cypermethrin are reported. The context of the peer review was that required by Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 844/2012.
