EFSA reviews MRLs for six ais

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has reviewed maximum residue limits (MRLs) for six active ingredients and concluded that further data are needed for three of them. Additional residue studies for specific crops are required for the fungicide, chlorothalonil, the acaricide, etoxazole, and the insecticide, pymetrozine. There are adequate data to support the MRLs for the herbicides, azimsulfuron, oxasulfuron and rimsulfuron. The reviews were carried out because the ais gained EU approval before the EU MRL Regulation (396/2005) came into force in September 2008.The Regulation initiated a programme to establish EU-wide MRLs that will eventually replace all existing national limits.
