Abstract

In accordance with Article 6 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, the applicants Syngenta Crop Protection B.V. and Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) submitted, respectively, a request to the competent national authorities in the Netherlands and United Kingdom to modify the existing maximum residue levels (MRLs) for the active substance mandipropamid in various crops. The data submitted in support of the request were found to be sufficient to derive MRL proposals for beetroots, radishes, cauliflowers, Brussels sprouts, witloofs/Belgian endives, peas (without pods) and globe artichokes. Adequate analytical methods for enforcement are available to control the residues of mandipropamid in plant matrices under consideration at the validated limit of quantification (LOQ) of 0.01 mg/kg. Based on the risk assessment results, EFSA concluded that the intake of residues resulting from the use of mandipropamid according to the reported agricultural practices is unlikely to present a risk to consumer health.
