Reasoned Opinion


The applicant BASF SE submitted a request to the competent national authority in Belgium to evaluate the confirmatory data that were identified for kresoxim‐methyl in the framework of the maximum residue level (MRL) review under Article 12 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005 as not available. To address the confirmatory data requirement, a new study on the storage stability of kresoxim‐methyl residues in animal matrices was submitted. The data gap was considered satisfactorily addressed. The new information provided did not require a revision of the existing MRLs and of the risk assessment performed for kresoxim‐methyl.
