EFSA reviews

31 March 2017

Review of the existing maximum residue levels for triflumizole according to Article 12 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005

 

According to Article 12 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, EFSA has reviewed the maximum residue levels (MRLs) currently established at European level for the pesticide active substance triflumizole.

To assess the occurrence of triflumizole residues in plants, processed commodities, rotational crops and livestock, EFSA considered the conclusions derived in the framework of Directive 91/414/EEC, the MRLs established by the Codex Alimentarius Commission as well as the import tolerances and European authorisations reported by Member States (including the supporting residues data).

Based on the assessment of the available data, MRL proposals were derived and a consumer risk assessment was carried out.

Although no apparent risk to consumers was identified, some information required by the regulatory framework was missing. Hence, the consumer risk assessment is considered indicative only and all MRL proposals derived by EFSA still require further consideration by risk managers.

 

Modification of the existing maximum residue level for ethephon in kaki/Japanese persimmons

In accordance with Article 6 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, the applicant Bayer CropScience submitted a request to the competent national authority in Spain to modify the existing maximum residue level (MRL) for the active substance ethephon in kaki/Japanese persimmons.

The data submitted in support of the request are sufficient to derive a MRL proposal for the crop under consideration. An adequate analytical method for enforcement is available to control the residues of ethephon in kaki/Japanese persimmon fruits.

Based on the risk assessment results, EFSA concluded that the short-term and long-term intake of residues resulting from the use of ethephon according to the reported agricultural practice is unlikely to present a risk to consumer health.
