UE: autoridad alimentaria revisa límites máximos de residuo para clorantraniliprole
In accordance with Article 6 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, the United Kingdom, herewith referred as the evaluating Member State (EMS), received an application from DuPont UK Ltd. to modify the existing MRLs and to set import tolerances for the active substance chlorantraniliprole in a number of commodities. In order to accommodate for the intended use of chlorantraniliprole, the United Kingdom proposed to raise the existing MRLs from the limit of quantification to 0.3 mg/kg for globe artichokes, from the value of 0.5 mg/kg to 0.8 mg/kg for legume vegetables (fresh) with pods and to set import tolerances of 0.7 mg/kg for citrus from South Africa, 0.02 mg/kg and 0.4 mg/kg for coffee and rice from Brazil, respectively. No MRL was proposed by the evaluating Member State for the intended use on strawberries and the import of legume vegetables from the United States. The United Kingdom 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. It is noted that chlorantraniliprole is a new active substance for which the peer review process according to Commission Regulation (EU) No 188/2011 is not yet finalised.
