In accordance with Article 6 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, the applicant Indofil Industries Limited submitted a request to the competent national authority in Germany to modify the existing maximum residue levels (MRLs) for the active substance mancozeb in garlic, broccoli, cauliflowers and leeks. The data submitted in support of the request were found to be sufficient to derive MRL proposals for the crops under consideration. Based on the risk assessment results, EFSA derived recommendations for further consideration by the risk managers. Adequate analytical methods for enforcement are available to control the residues of mancozeb in the crops under consideration.
