Reasoned Opinion


In accordance with Article 6 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, the Australian Government Department of Agriculture and Water Resources submitted two requests to the competent national authority in Denmark to set import tolerances for the active substance haloxyfop‐P in linseed and rapeseed. The data submitted in support of the request were found to be sufficient to derive maximum residue level (MRL) proposals for linseed and rapeseed. Adequate analytical methods for enforcement are available to control the residues of haloxyfop‐P in plant matrices under consideration at the validated limit of quantification (LOQ) of 0.05 mg/kg. EFSA reiterates the recommendation from the Article 12 MRL review that an independent laboratory validation (ILV) should be provided. Based on the risk assessment results, EFSA concluded that the short‐term and long‐term intake of residues resulting from the use of haloxyfop‐P according to the reported agricultural practices is unlikely to present a risk to consumer health.
