EU proposes to increase MRLs for flupyradifurone on certain products
Draft Commission Regulation amending Annex II to Regulation (EC) No. 396/2005 of the European Parliament and of the Council as regards maximum residue levels for 1,4-dimethylnaphthalene, difluoroacetic acid (DFA), fluopyram and flupyradifurone in or on certain products
The European Commission has informed the World Trade Organization Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures (WTO SPS) Committee that it intends to amend MRLs for flupyradifurone on different products (G/SPS/N/EU/701).
apricots, peaches, plums, cherries, cranberries, currants, gooseberries, rose hips, mulberries, azaroles, elderberries, mangoes, papayas, Chinese cabbages/ pe-tsai, kales, herbs and edible flowers, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, common millet, oats, rye; fat, liver, kidney, edible offals from pigs; honey
What is changing?
The EU proposes to increase the MRLs for flupyradifurone as summarised in Table 1.
Following a request to review the MRLs for flupyradifurone and to set import tolerances, EFSA (2023) did not identify a consumer health risk. The EU therefore proposes to adopt higher MRLs to avoid trade barriers when importing these crops.
Expected date of publication: August 2024.
The new MRLs are expected to apply from early 2025.
Competent authorities of countries that are members of the World Trade Organization (WTO) can submit comments on the EU’s proposal by emailing the EU SPS Enquiry Point until 10 February 2024.
