In accordance with Article 6 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, the applicant Syngenta Crop Protection AG submitted a request to the competent national authority in Portugal to modify the existing maximum residue level (MRL) for the active substance fluazifop‐P in tomato. The data submitted in support of the request were found to be sufficient to derive MRL proposal for tomato. An adequate analytical method for enforcement is available to control the residues of fluazifop‐P in tomato at the validated limit of quantification (LOQ) of 0.01 mg/kg. Based on the risk assessment results, EFSA concluded that the short‐term and long‐term intake of residues resulting from the use of fluazifop‐P according to the reported agricultural practice is unlikely to present a risk to consumer health.
