Evaluation of confirmatory data following the Article 12 MRL review for propiconazole
The applicant Syngenta Crop Protection AG submitted a request to the competent national authority in Finland to evaluate the confirmatory data that were identified for propiconazole in the framework of the MRL review under Article 12 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005 as not available. Following the decision on the non‐renewal of the approval of propiconazole and the decision to lower the maximum residue levels (MRLs) for propiconazole to the limit of quantification (LOQ) for all commodities, the data gaps identified in the MRL review are no longer relevant. EFSA summarised some new studies on the toxicological profile of propiconazole metabolites CGA91305, SYN547889 and NOA436613, which were assessed by the rapporteur Member State. Overall, the available information is not sufficient to characterise the toxicological profile of metabolites convertible to 2,4‐dichlorobenzoic acid as data gaps still exist for SYN547889, NOA436613, CGA118244, CGA118245, CGA91304 and CGA91305.
