EFSA: Fluopyram, MRLs Review

EFSA: Fluopyram, MRLs Review


The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has published the Reasoned Opinion on the Modification of the existing maximum residue levels for fluopyram.


To assess the occurrence of fluopyram residues, EFSA considered the conclusions derived in the framework of Commission Regulation (EU) No 188/2011, the MRLs established by the Codex Alimentarius Commission as well as the import tolerances and European authorizations reported by Member States.
 
EFSA recommends setting a lower MRL for almonds, Brazil nuts, cashews, hazelnuts, macadamias, pecans, pine nuts, pistachios and walnuts from 0.05 ppm to 0.04 ppm, taking into account the option 1 (assuming that adequate risk mitigation measures are in place to avoid significant residues in crops grown in rotation with crops treated with fluopyram).
 
On the contrary, the agency proposes to raise the MRL for plums from 0.5 ppm to 0.6 ppm; for table grapes from 1.5 ppm to 2 ppm, and for cranberries from 3 ppm to 4 ppm, taking into account the option 1 and also option 2 (assuming that no risk mitigation is implemented).
