The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has issued a public consultation on its planned revisions to the guidance document on risk assessment for birds and mammals under the EU agrochemical registration Directive (91/414). The document provides guidance for companies and regulators. Revisions have been made in response to calls for items such as additional exposure scenarios, clarification of species selection and improved data on pesticide residues in insects. Comments are requested by January 27th 2008. Details are available at: http://www.efsa europa.eu/EFSA/efsa-locale-1178620753812-1178660551795.htm.
