Meta data


In accordance with Article 6 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, the Federal Public Service (FPS) Health, Food chain Safety and Environment submitted a request on behalf of Belgium (evaluating Member State, EMS) to modify the existing maximum residue level (MRL) for the active substance pyridate in chives. The data submitted in support of the request were found to be sufficient to derive an MRL proposal for chives. Adequate analytical methods for enforcement are available to control the residues of pyridate on the commodity under consideration at the validated limit of quantification (LOQ) of 0.05 mg/kg pyridate equivalent. Based on the risk assessment results, EFSA concluded that the short‐term and long‐term intake of residues resulting from the use of pyridate according to the reported agricultural practice is unlikely to present a risk to consumer health.
