Setting of import tolerances for azoxystrobin in mangoes and oil palm fruits

on the Wiley Online Library



In accordance with Article 6 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, the applicant Syngenta Crop Protection AG submitted a request to the competent national authority in Austria to set an import tolerance for the active substance azoxystrobin in mangoes and oil palm fruits imported from Brazil and Colombia, respectively. The data submitted in support of the request were found to be sufficient to derive maximum residue level (MRL) proposals for mangoes and oil palm fruits. Adequate analytical methods for enforcement are available to control the residues of azoxystrobin on the commodities under consideration at the validated limit of quantification (LOQ) of 0.01 mg/kg. Based on the risk assessment results, noting that an acute risk assessment was not deemed necessary for azoxystrobin, EFSA concluded that the long‐term intake of residues resulting from the uses of azoxystrobin according to the reported agricultural practices is unlikely to present a risk to consumer health.
