EFSA reviews

26 September 2017

Modification of the existing maximum residue level for acibenzolar-S-methyl in kiwi fruits

In accordance with Article 6 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, the applicant Syngenta France SAS submitted a request to the competent national authority in France to modify the existing maximum residue level (MRL) for the active substance in kiwi fruits. The data submitted in support of the request were found to be sufficient to derive a MRL proposal for the crop under consideration.

Adequate analytical methods for enforcement are available to control the residues of acibenzolar-S-methyl in the plant matrix under consideration. Based on the risk assessment results, EFSA concluded that the short-term and long-term intake of residues resulting from the use of acibenzolar-S-methyl according to the reported agricultural practice is unlikely to present a risk to consumer health.

For more details see EFSA’s report.

 

Review of the existing maximum residue levels for bromuconazole 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 bromuconazole.

To assess the occurrence of bromuconazole residues in plants, processed commodities, rotational crops and livestock, EFSA considered the conclusions derived in the framework of Directive 91/414/EEC as well as the 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.

For more details see the EFSA report.
