Reasoned Opinion


According to Article 12 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has reviewed the Maximum Residue Levels (MRLs) currently established at European level for the pesticide active substance 1,3-dichloropropene. Considering that this active substance is no longer authorised within the European Union, that no MRLs are established by the Codex Alimentarius Commission, and that no import tolerances were notified to EFSA, residues of 1,3-dichloropropene are not expected to occur in any plant or animal commodity. Available data were also not sufficient to derive an LOQ for enforcement against potential illegal uses.
