|1.||Notifying Member: United States
If applicable, name of local government involved:
|2.||Agency responsible: US Environmental Protection Agency|
|3.||Products covered (provide tariff item number(s) as specified in national schedules deposited with the WTO; ICS numbers should be provided in addition, where applicable): Multiple products|
|4.||Regions or countries likely to be affected, to the extent relevant or practicable:
[X] All trading partners
[ ] Specific regions or countries:
|5.||Title of the notified document: Difenoconazole; Pesticide Tolerances Language(s): English Number of pages: 7|
|6.||Description of content: This final rule establishes tolerances for residues of difenoconazole in or on aspirated grain fractions; carrot; chickpea; fruits, stone, group 12; soybean, hulls; soybean, seed; strawberry; and turnip greens. This final rule also increases the existing tolerances for cattle, liver; goat, liver; hog, liver; horse, liver; sheep, liver; and decreases the existing tolererance for egg and revises the tolerance expression for animal commodities.|
|7.||Objective and rationale: [X] food safety, [ ] animal health, [ ] plant protection, [ ] protect humans from animal/plant pest or disease, [ ] protect territory from other damage from pests.|
|8.||Is there a relevant international standard? If so, identify the standard:
[X] Codex Alimentarius Commission (e.g. title or serial number of Codex standard or related text) Codex maximum residue levels (MRLs) for residues of difenoconazole per se have been established at 0.2 ppm for carrot; 0.02 ppm for soya bean (dry); 0.2 ppm for cherries and plums (including prunes); and 0.5 ppm for nectarines and peaches. Codex MRLs for residues of difenoconazole and its metabolite CGA-205375, expressed as difenoconazole have been established at 0.2 ppm for edible offal (mammalian) and 0.01 for eggs. Based on the submitted/available magnitude of the residue data, harmonization with established Codex MRLs is not possible for carrots, soya bean (dry), cherries, plums (including prunes), nectarines, peaches, edible offal (mammalian), and eggs because the Codex MRLs are too low, due to differences in the use patterns, called Good Agricultural Practices or GAPs.
[ ] World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) (e.g. Terrestrial or Aquatic Animal Health Code, chapter number)
[ ] International Plant Protection Convention (e.g. ISPM number)
[ ] None
Does this proposed regulation conform to the relevant international standard?
[ ] Yes [X] No
If no, describe, whenever possible, how and why it deviates from the international standard: Codex applies to some, but not all, of the products listed.
