Review of the existing maximum residue levels for phosmet according to Article 12 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005

on the Wiley Online Library



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 phosmet. Although this active substance is no longer authorised within the European Union, MRLs were established by the Codex Alimentarius Commission (codex maximum residue limits; CXLs). Based on the available data, EFSA assessed the CXLs and a consumer risk assessment was carried out. The CXLs were found to be supported by inadequate data and a possible chronic and acute risk to consumers was identified for several commodities. Hence, further consideration by risk managers is needed.
