Subject: Your cooperation with the European Food Authority EFSA on the risk assessment of chemical cocktails
Dear Mr. Ghebreyesus, Mr. Amoth and Mr. Cormann,
With this letter we would like to give you some background information on the work of the EU Food Authority EFSA regarding pesticide cocktails and its attempt to ‘sell’ its risk assessment system to you through its ‘international’ workshop’ (18-20 October 2021)1. We believe that you are not aware of the details of EFSA’s policy which is designed by the pesticide industry. We, therefore, feel it is imperative to share with you some facts alongside our views on the matter. In addition to demonstrating why this methodology cannot be supported by your institutions, we respectfully call for your support of the mixture assessment method.
