Abstract

In accordance with Article 6 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, the applicant Bayer SAS ‐ Crop Science Division submitted a request to the competent national authority in the Netherlands to modify the existing maximum residue levels (MRL) for the active substance flupyradifurone and its metabolite DFA in rapeseeds/canola seeds and mustard seeds. The data submitted in support of the request were found sufficient to derive MRL proposals for both compounds in rapeseeds and mustard seeds. Adequate analytical methods for enforcement are available to control the relevant residues in plant matrices under consideration. Based on the risk assessment results, EFSA concluded that the short‐term and long‐term intake of residues of flupyradifurone and of its metabolite DFA resulting from the use of flupyradifurone is unlikely to present a risk to consumer health.
