Abstract

In accordance with Article 6 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, the applicant Bayer S.A.S. ‐ Crop Science division submitted a request to the competent national authority in Austria to modify the existing maximum residue levels (MRLs) for the active substance spirotetramat in leeks, spring onions and in honey. The data submitted in support of the request were found to be sufficient to derive MRL proposals for all these crops and honey. Adequate analytical methods for enforcement are available to control the residues of spirotetramat and its metabolites in plant matrices on the commodities under consideration and in honey at the validated limit of quantification (LOQ) of 0.01 mg/kg for each analyte. Based on the risk assessment results, EFSA concluded that the short‐term and long‐term intake of residues resulting from the use of spirotetramat according to the reported agricultural practices is unlikely to present a risk to consumer health.
