|6.||Description of content: The objective of the notified document PMRL2012-02 is to consult on the listed import maximum residue limits (MRLs) for fludioxonil that have been proposed by Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA).
MRL (ppm) Raw Agricultural Commodity (RAC) and/or Processed Commodity
65 Herbs (Crop Subgroup 19A; dried leaves)
30 Leaves of root and tuber vegetables (Crop group 2)

0.5 Tomatoes, tomatillos
0.45 Cucurbit vegetables (Crop Group 9), avocados, black sapotes, canistels, mamey sapotes, mangoes, papayas, sapodillas, star apples
*Carrot roots are excluded as a 0.75 ppm MRL is already established for the commodity.
Most of the MRLs included herein are proposed to revise existing MRLs previously established at 0.01 or 0.02 ppm based upon the use of fludioxonil in Canada as a seed treatment. The specific MRL revisions are identified in PMRL2012-02.
MRLs are proposed for each commodity included in the listed crop groupings in accordance with the Residue Chemistry Crop Groups webpage (“http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/cps-spc/pest/part/protect-proteger/food-nourriture/rccg-gcpcr-eng.php“) in the Pesticides and Pest Management section of Health Canada’s website.
