Modification of the existing maximum residue levels for fosetyl/phosphonic acid in apricots, cherries and plums resulting from the use of potassium phosphonates


In accordance with Article 6 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, the applicant LAINCO S.A. submitted a request to the competent national authority in Greece to modify the existing maximum residue levels (MRLs), currently expressed as fosetyl in the MRL Regulation, resulting from the use of the active substance potassium phosphonates on apricots, cherries and plums. The data submitted in support of the request were found to be sufficient to derive MRL proposals and address the data gap for residue trials compliant with the Southern EU uses identified in the joint MRL review for cherries and plums, but insufficient for apricots. Adequate analytical methods for enforcement are available to control the residues on the commodities under consideration. Based on the risk assessment results, EFSA concluded that the long‐term intake of residues resulting from the uses of potassium phosphonates according to the intended agricultural practices is unlikely to present a risk to consumer health.
