Abstract

According to Article 12 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, EFSA has reviewed the maximum residue levels (MRLs) currently established at European level for the pesticide active substance bromadiolone. Considering that this active substance is not authorised for use on edible crops within the EU, that no MRLs are established by the Codex Alimentarius Commission (codex maximum residue limits) and that no import tolerances were notified to EFSA, residues of bromadiolone are not expected to occur in any plant or animal commodity. Even though information on the limit of quantification (LOQ) of bromadiolone was provided by the European Union Reference Laboratories for Pesticide Residues, the available data were not sufficient to derive a residue definition for enforcement against potential illegal uses.
