EFSA’s 2013 Guidance Document for the risk assessments for pesticides and bees has been reviewed and the first draft launched for a public consultation. Most of the aspects and methods for the characterisation of the exposure, the hazard, and for the lower- and higher-tier risk assessments have been updated. The methods described in the new document are able to predict the effect of a pesticide on the colony/population in a more realistic way while respecting the protection goal as agreed by the risk managers. A series of presentations explained the most important changes compared to the 2013 version and the main characteristics of the reviewed guidance document.
