on the Wiley Online Library



In accordance with Article 6 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, the evaluating Member State (EMS), Greece, received an application from Nisso Chemical Europe GmbH to modify the existing maximum residue levels (MRLs) for the active substance cyflufenamid in apricots, cherries, peaches, plums and globe artichokes. According to EFSA, the data are sufficient to derive MRL proposal of 0.06 mg/kg for the proposed southern Europe uses on apricots, peaches, plums; of 0.1 mg/kg for cherries and of 0.03 mg/kg on globe artichokes. Adequate analytical enforcement methods are available to control the residues of cyflufenamid in the commodities under consideration. Based on the risk assessment results, EFSA concludes that the proposed use of cyflufenamid on the above-mentioned crops will not result in a consumer exposure exceeding the toxicological reference values and therefore is unlikely to pose a consumer health risk.
