Setting of import tolerance for cyflufenamid in hops



In accordance with Article 6 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, the applicant Nisso Chemical Europe GmbH submitted a request to the competent national authority in Greece to set an import tolerance for the active substance cyflufenamid in hops. The data submitted in support of the request were found to be sufficient to derive an maximum residue level (MRL) proposal for hops; however, further risk management considerations are required to decide on the appropriate MRL values considering that the MRL in the country of origin is lower than the MRL proposal derived from the residue trials. Adequate analytical methods for enforcement are available to control the residues of cyflufenamid in the crop under consideration at the validated limit of quantification (LOQ) of 0.01 mg/kg. Based on the consumer risk assessment results, EFSA concluded that the short‐term and long‐term intake of residues resulting from the use of cyflufenamid according to the reported agricultural practice in the country of origin is unlikely to present a risk to consumer health. This conclusion shall be regarded as indicative considering that some MRL proposals derived by EFSA during the MRL review require further confirmatory data.
