Modification of the existing maximum residue levels for dodine in citrus fruits

Metadata

Abstract

In accordance with Article 6 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, the applicant Arysta LifeScience (ALS) Benelux SPRL submitted a request to the competent national authority in Spain to modify the existing maximum residue level (MRL) for the active substance dodine in citrus fruits. The data submitted in support of the request were found to be sufficient to derive MRL proposals for the group of citrus fruits. Adequate analytical methods for enforcement are available to control the residues of dodine in the commodities under consideration at the validated limit of quantification (LOQ) of 0.01 mg/kg. In animal matrices, no enforcement method is available for fat, muscle and milk whereby in liver and kidney dodine can be enforced at the LOQ of 0.01 mg/kg however an interlaboratory validation (ILV) is still required. Based on the risk assessment results, EFSA concluded that the short‐term and long‐term intake of residues resulting from the uses of dodine according to the reported agricultural practices is unlikely to present a risk to consumer health.
