Setting of import tolerances for chlorantraniliprole in strawberries and pulses
In accordance with Article 6 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, the applicant FMC Agro Limited submitted a request to the competent national authority in the UK to set import tolerances for the active substance chlorantraniliprole in strawberries and the whole category pulses (beans, lentils, peas and lupins/lupini beans). The data submitted in support of the request were found to be sufficient to derive an maximum residue level (MRL) proposal for the whole category pulses. The available data are not sufficient to derive an import tolerance for strawberries and no modification of the current EU MRL is required. Adequate analytical methods for enforcement are available to control the residues of chlorantraniliprole in the commodities under consideration at the validated limit of quantification (LOQ) of 0.01 mg/kg. Based on the risk assessment results, EFSA concluded that the long‐term intake of residues resulting from the use of chlorantraniliprole according to the reported agricultural practice is unlikely to present a risk to consumer health. The reliable end points, appropriate for use in regulatory risk assessment are presented.
