Modification of the existing maximum residue levels for emamectin in various crops


In accordance with Article 6 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, the applicant Syngenta France S.A.S. submitted a request to the competent national authority in France to modify the existing maximum residue levels (MRLs) for emamectin. The data submitted in support of the request were found to be sufficient to derive MRL proposals for apricots, cherries, spinaches and similar leaves and herbal infusions from leaves and herbs, whereas a change of the existing MRL is not necessary for pome fruits. Adequate analytical methods for enforcement are available to control the residues of emamectin B1a on the commodities under consideration. Based on the risk assessment results, EFSA concluded that the short‐term and long‐term intake of residues resulting from the uses of emamectin benzoate according to the intended agricultural practices are unlikely to present a risk to consumer health. The consumer risk assessment shall be regarded as indicative since affected by uncertainty related to the data gaps identified in the MRL review.
