EU amends MRLs for triflumuron with potential impact for export of apples, pears, apricots, peaches, and plums
Commission Regulation (EU) 2023/2382 of 29 September 2023 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 carbetamide, carboxin and triflumuron in or on certain products
The EU has reduced the maximum residue levels (MRLs) for triflumuron to 0.01 mg/kg on apples, pears, apricots, peaches, and plums
apples, pears, apricots, peaches, plums
What is changing?
The EU has changed the MRLs for triflumuron as set out in Table 1.
The approval of triflumuron for use in the EU expired on 31 March 2021, and no application for its renewal was submitted. As the substance is no longer authorised, and there are no Codex Alimentarius MRLs or import tolerances for triflumuron, all MRLs were reduced to the limit of determination (LOD, the lowest level that can be detected using the most modern and reliable analytical methods) of 0.01–0.05 mg/kg.
The new MRLs apply from 25 April 2024.
Suppliers to the EU market of apples, pears, apricots, peaches, and plums must ensure that alternative solutions are found to the existing use of triflumuron on these products by April 2024. Products exported before 25 April 2024 that comply with the old MRLs will not be removed from the EU market after 25 April, even if they are not compliant with the new MRLs.
