In accordance with Article 43 of Regulation (EC) 396/2005, EFSA received a request from the European Commission to provide support for the preparation of the EU position for 47th session of the Codex Committee on Pesticide Residues (CCPR). In 2014 JMPR evaluated 15 active substances regarding the setting of toxicological reference values to be used in consumer risk assessment (aminocyclopyrachlor, benzovindiflupyr, cyflumetofen, dichlobenil, emamectin benzoate, fenamidone, fluensulfone, flufenoxuron, imazamox, mesotrione, metrafenone, myclobutanil, pymetrozine and triforine) and 32 active substance regarding the setting of Maximum Residue Limits (MRLs) (aminocyclopyrachlor, benzovindiflupyr, buprofezin, chlorantraniliprole, chlothianidin, cyflumetofen, dichlobenil, dimethomorph, dithiocarbamates (mancozeb), emamectin benzoate, fenamidone, fenpropathrin, fluensulfone, flufenoxuron, fluopyram, glufosinate, imazamox, mesotrione, metrafenone, myclobutanil, phosmet, propamocarb, propiconazole, prothioconazole, pymetrozine, pyraclostrobin, sedaxane, spirodiclofen, sulfoxaflor, thiamethoxam, triadimenol and triforine). The relevant findings that should serve as the basis for deriving the EU position for the CCPR meeting are summarised in this report.
