Modification of the existing maximum residue level for deltamethrin in carobs/Saint John's breads


Published on: Tue, 27 Oct 2020

In accordance with Article 6 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, the applicant Bayer SAS – Crop Science Division submitted a request to the competent national authority in Spain to modify the existing maximum residue level (MRL) for the active substance deltamethrin in carobs/Saint John's breads. The data submitted in support of the request were found to suffice to derive an MRL proposal for carobs. An adequate analytical method for enforcement is available to control the residues of deltamethrin in the commodity under consideration at the validated limit of quantification (LOQ) of 0.01 mg/kg. Based on the risk assessment results using the PRIMo rev. 3.1 model, EFSA concluded that the short‐term consumer exposure for the intended post‐harvest use on carobs did not exceed the toxicological reference value. The long‐term intake of residues of deltamethrin indicated a consumer risk. Although residues in carobs are minor contributors to the overall chronic consumer exposure, a risk management consideration is required to decide whether the MRL proposal for carobs is acceptable. The risk assessment shall be regarded as indicative and affected by non‐standard uncertainties.
