Abstract

According to Article 12 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, EFSA has reviewed the maximum residue levels (MRLs) currently established at European level for the pesticide active substance Streptomyces lydicus strain WYEC 108. Considering the information provided by Member States, neither EU uses nor import tolerances are currently authorised for Streptomyces lydicus strain WYEC 108 within the EU. Furthermore, no MRLs are established by the Codex Alimentarius Commission (codex maximum residue limits) for this active substance. Therefore, residues of Streptomyces lydicus strain WYEC 108 are not expected to occur in any plant or animal commodity and therefore a consumer risk assessment is not required. Nevertheless, the available information allowed EFSA to propose a marker residue definition noting that methods for identification and quantification of Streptomyces lydicus strain WYEC 108 are available; however, a method for enforcement fully validated at a specific limit of quantification (LOQ) was not provided. An inclusion of Streptomyces lydicus strain WYEC 108 in Annex IV of (EC) No 396/2005 is not recommended.
