Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
Yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae is ubiquitous in nature and naturally occurring in all environmental compartments and animals. No toxicity of yeast or yeast extract is expected in all environmental compartments.
Executive summary:

The conclusions of the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) following the peer review of the initial risk assessments carried out by the competent authority of the rapporteur Member State France for the pesticide active substance Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain LAS02 and the assessment of the application to include Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain LAS02 in Annex IV of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, are reported. The context of the peer review was that required by Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council. The conclusions were reached on the basis of the evaluation of the representative use of Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain LAS02 as a fungicide on pome fruits, stone fruits, grapevine, tomato and strawberries. The reliable endpoints, appropriate for use in regulatory risk assessment are presented. Missing information identified as being required by the regulatory framework is listed. Concerns are identified.
