Focussed assessment of certain existing MRLs of concern for Spinosad
Published on: 15 February 2021
In compliance with Article 43 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, the EFSA received from the European Commission a mandate to provide its reasoned opinion on the existing maximum residue levels (MRLs) for spinosad which might lead to consumers intake concerns on the basis of a new toxicological reference value established during the peer review and of the data currently available to EFSA. In order to identify the MRLs of potential concern that require a more detailed assessment, EFSA screened the existing MRLs for spinosad considering the new toxicological reference values and an acute risk could not be excluded for six commodities. Fall‐back MRLs for all six commodities were proposed on the basis of the data received under the present assessment.
