UE: modifican límites máximos de residuos para cyflufenamida en manzanas y peras en varios cultivos
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 Nisso Chemical Europe GmbH to modify the existing MRLs for the active substance cyflufenamid in apples, pears, table and wine grapes, courgette, cucumber and melon. In order to accommodate for the intended uses of cyflufenamid, it is suggested to raise the existing MRLs from 0.02* mg/kg for these crops to the proposed MRL of 0.05 mg/kg for apples, pears and courgettes, to the MRL of 0.04 mg/kg for cucumber and melon and to the MRL of 0.15 mg/kg for table and wine grapes. The United Kingdom as the Evaluating Member State (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 13 September 2010. During the assessment some data requirements were identifed which prevented EFSA to conclude on the consumer risk assessment. The EMS, in collaboration with the applicant, fulfilled the data requirements and provided an updated evaluation report received on 29 March 2011.
