According to Article 6 of the Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, Germany, herewith referred to as the Evaluating Member State (EMS), received an application from the company BASF SE to modify the existing MRLs for dimethomorph in spinach and beet leaves (chard). In order to accommodate for the intended use of dimethomorph on these crops in Germany, it is proposed to raise the existing MRLs to 1 mg/kg. The EMS drafted an evaluation report according to Article 8 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005 which was submitted to the European Commission and forwarded to EFSA on 23 June 2011.
