EFSA has launched a public consultation on the draft guidance document of the EFSA Panel on Plant Protection Products and their Residues on the establishment of the residue definition for dietary risk assessment. This document provides a framework for harmonising the process of the establishment of the residue definition for dietary risk assessment by inclusion/exclusion of pesticide residues on the basis of their toxicity and potential for exposure in the diet. The guidance document is complemented by three practical case studies which are intended to demonstrate the applicability of the proposed approach.
The document covers a number of important areas of interest including residue definition setting process, Quantitative Structure-Activity Relationships (QSAR), Threshold of Toxicological Concern (TTC), toxicology testing strategies, exposure estimation and the assessment of stereoisomers.
EFSA has launched a public consultation on the draft document developed by the PPR Panel of EFSA and interested parties are invited to submit written comments by 2 May 2016. The background information and draft document are available at: http://www.efsa.europa.eu/en/consultations/call/160307.
For advice on risk assessment and further information on the registration of plant protection products, biocides or general chemicals, or any other regulatory issues, please contact JSC on +44 (0)1423 520245, firstname.lastname@example.org.
