Modification of the existing maximum residue levels for triclopyr in oranges, lemons and mandarins

on the Wiley Online Library



In accordance with Article 6 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, the applicant Agriphar SA submitted a request to the competent national authority in Ireland to modify the existing maximum residue levels (MRLs) for the active substance triclopyr in oranges, lemons and mandarins. The data submitted in support of the request were found to be sufficient to derive an MRL proposal for these commodities. Adequate analytical methods for enforcement are available to control the residues of triclopyr in the plant matrices under consideration at the validated LOQ of 0.01 mg/kg. Based on the risk assessment results, EFSA concluded that the short‐term and long‐term intake of residues resulting from the use of triclopyr according to the reported agricultural practice is unlikely to present a risk to consumer health.
