Modification of the existing maximum residue levels for cyflumetofen in various crops
In accordance with Article 6 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, the applicants BASF Agro B.V. (represented by OAT Agrio Co. Ltd.) and Certis Europe B.V. submitted separate requests to the competent national authority in the Netherlands to modify the existing maximum residue levels (MRLs) for the active substance cyflumetofen in various crops. The data submitted in support of the requests were found to be sufficient to derive MRL proposals for citrus fruits, apricots, peaches, tomatoes, aubergines, cucumbers and hops. Adequate analytical methods for enforcement are available to control the residues of cyflumetofen on the fruit commodities under consideration at the validated limit of quantification (LOQ) of 0.01 mg/kg and on hops at the LOQ of 0.1 mg/kg. Based on the risk assessment results, EFSA concluded that the long‐term intake of residues resulting from the use of cyflumetofen according to the reported agricultural practices is unlikely to present a risk to consumer health.
