Maximum residue levels for fenoxycarb
Published by AGRINFO on
EU proposes to reduce MRLs for fenoxycarb to the limit of determination on all products
Draft Commission Regulation amending Annexes II and V to Regulation (EC) No 396/2005 of the European Parliament and of the Council as regards maximum residue levels for diethofencarb, fenoxycarb, flutriafol and pencycuron in or on certain products
The EU proposes to set the MRLs for fenoxycarb on all products to the limit of determination (LOD, the lowest level that can be detected using the most modern and reliable analytical methods).
What is changing?
The EU proposes to amend the MRLs for fenoxycarb as summarised in Table 1.
The approval for fenoxycarb has not been renewed as the manufacturer did not submit a new application for approval. Therefore fenoxycarb is no longer authorised in the EU, and all MRLs will be set at the LOD.
Expected date of adoption: January 2024.
Expected date of entry into force: March 2024.
The new MRLs will apply from approximately September 2024 – the precise date will be known once the Regulation is published.
In anticipation of the MRL changes, exporters of the products affected should review their current use of fenoxycarb and, where necessary, look for potential alternative solutions.
