UE: autoridad alimentaria modifica límites máximos de residuos para glyfosfato
According to Article 6 of the Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, Germany, herewith referred to as the rapporteur Member State (RMS), received an application from the company Monsanto Europe to set an import tolerance for glyphosate in lentils. In order to accommodate the authorized desiccation use of glyphosate on lentils in the United States and Canada, the RMS proposes to raise the existing MRL for lentils to 10 mg/kg. The RMS Germany 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 1 August 2011.
