Meta data


In accordance with Article 6 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, the applicant BASF SE submitted a request to the competent national authority in the Netherlands to modify the existing maximum residue level (MRL) for the active substance ametoctradin in honey. The data submitted in support of the request were found to be sufficient to derive an MRL proposal for honey. Adequate analytical methods for enforcement are available to control the residues of ametoctradin in the commodity under consideration at the validated screening detection limit (SDL) of 0.0025 mg/kg. Based on the risk assessment results, EFSA concluded that the dietary intake of residues in food of plant and animal origin (including honey) resulting from the use of ametoctradin according to the existing agricultural practices is unlikely to present a risk to consumer health.
