EFSA seeks views on pest assessments
The European Food Safety Authority is seeking comments on draft guidance on the environmental risk assessment of plant pests. The document proposes methods for assessing the environmental risks posed by invertebrates, pathogens, parasitic plants and weeds that may enter and spread in the EU. It also provides an overview of available management options. Comments are requested by October 9th 2011 and may be submitted online at: http://www.efsa.europa.eu/en/consultations/call/110829.htm.
