Outcome of the public consultation on the scientific report on the establishment of cumulative assessment groups of pesticides for their effects on the nervous system
The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) carried out a public consultation to receive inputs from interested parties on a draft scientific report on the establishment of cumulative assessment groups of pesticides regarding their combined effects on the nervous system. The document proposes cumulative assessment groups of pesticides to be used to perform cumulative risk assessments for five specific effects that pesticide residues may have on the nervous system.The public consultation was open in May‐June 2018.The present report reproduces the comments received and explains how they have been considered by EFSA for finalisation of the scientific report. The valuable and detailed comments from the stakeholders were taken into account by ESFA to prepare an updated version of the scientific report. The scientific report was approved by EFSA on 26 June 2019 and is published in the EFSA Journal.
