There has been a significant increase in the MRL levels for fosestyl-al in a range of fresh produce items. These MRL came into force on 8th Feb 2024.

Potassium phosphonates is an approved active substance in Great Britain. The MRLs for fosetyl-Al cover the active substances disodium phosphonates, fosetyl-Al and potassium phosphonates.
In accordance with Article 6 of Assimilated Regulation 396/2005, HSE received an application to set new MRLs for fosetyl-Al, to cover the use of the active substance potassium phosphonates on various commodities. The application was to support an extension of authorisation for a minor use.
HSE as the competent authority drew up an Evaluation Report (ER) that included its Reasoned Opinion (RO) on the risk to consumers associated with amending the MRLs.
