  • the protection of birds, mammals and aquatic organisms. Conditions of authorisation should include risk mitigation measures.

The Member States concerned shall request the submission of further studies to confirm the long term risk assessment for birds and mammals, as well as the toxicological assessment on metabolites potentially present in groundwater under vulnerable conditions.
