Meta data


In accordance with Article 6 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, FPS Public Health, Food Chain Safety and Environment on behalf of Belgium (evaluating Member State, EMS) submitted an application to modify the existing maximum residue levels (MRLs) for the active substance flupyradifurone and its metabolite difluoroacetic acid (DFA) in okra/lady's finger. The data submitted in support of the request were found sufficient to derive MRL proposals for the crop under consideration. The potential contribution of DFA residues in okra/lady's finger from the soil uptake was also estimated. Adequate analytical methods for enforcement are available to control the relevant residues in the crop under consideration. Based on the risk assessment results, EFSA concluded that the long‐term intake of residues of flupyradifurone and of its soil metabolite DFA resulting from the use of flupyradifurone is unlikely to present a risk to consumer health. Due to the lack of proper consumption data of okra/lady's finger, the acute exposure assessment could not be reliably undertaken but due to this crop being a minor commodity it is unlikely that acute consumer intake concerns will be associated with this crop.
