EFSA considers agchem levels in soil
The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has opened a consultation on possible approaches to predicting the environmental concentration of agrochemicals in soil. It has issued a draft opinion on the science behind selecting exposure scenarios for soil. Such scenarios have been developed only for surface and ground water, the EFSA notes. Comments are requested by September 13th. The online consultation is available at: http://www.efsa.europa.eu/en/consultations/call/110719.htm.
