Review of the existing maximum residue levels for pencycuron according to Article 12 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005
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 pencycuron. To assess the occurrence of pencycuron residues in plants, processed commodities, rotational crops and livestock, EFSA considered the conclusions derived in the framework of Commission Regulation (EC) No 33/2008 as well as the European authorisations reported by Member States (including the supporting residues data). Based on the assessment of the available data, MRL proposals were derived and a consumer risk assessment was carried out. Some information required by the regulatory framework was missing and a possible risk to consumers was identified. Hence, the consumer risk assessment is considered indicative only and no MRL proposals were derived by EFSA. Further consideration by risk managers are needed and measures for reduction of the consumer exposure should also be considered.
