Type: Reasoned Opinion On request from: European Commission Question number: EFSA-Q-2010-01052 Approved: 10 January 2011 Published: 12 January 2011 Affiliation: European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), Parma, Italy According to Article 6 of the Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, The Netherlands, herewith referred to as the evaluating Member State (EMS), received an application from Syngenta Crop Protection AG to modify the existing MRLs for the active substance emamectin benzoate in citrus, apricots and plums. In order to accommodate for the intended uses of emamectin benzoate, it is proposed to raise the existing MRLs of 0.01* mg/kg for citrus fruit, apricots and plums to 0.01 mg/kg for citrus fruit and 0.02 mg/kg for apricots and plums. The Netherlands drafted an evaluation report according to Article 8 of that regulation, which was submitted to the European Commission and forwarded to EFSA on 16 August 2010. In the course of the assessment EFSA asked for further clarifications which were essential to finalise the risk assessment. The EMS provided the required information and submitted an updated evaluation report on 14 December 2010.
