Abstract

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 tolylfluanid. Although this active substance is no longer authorised within the European Union, MRLs were established by the Codex Alimentarius Commission (CXLs). Based on the assessment of the available data, EFSA assessed the CXLs, and a consumer risk assessment was carried out. All CXLs were found not to be adequately supported by data and a possible acute risk to consumers was identified for some of them. Hence, further consideration by risk managers is needed.
