Modification of existing MRL for mancozeb in persimmons


EFSA Panel on EFSA Panel on Plant Protection Products and their Residues (PPR)

In accordance with Article 6 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, the evaluating Member State (EMS), Spain, received an application from United Phosphorus Ltd. to modify the existing maximum residue level (MRL) for the active substance mancozeb in persimmons. To accommodate for the intended use of mancozeb, Spain proposed to raise the existing MRL from the limit of quantification of 0.05 to 0.2 mg/kg. Spain drafted an evaluation report in accordance with Article 8 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, which was submitted to the European Commission and forwarded to EFSA. According to EFSA, the data are sufficient to derive a MRL proposal of 0.2 mg/kg (expressed as carbon disulfide) for the proposed use on persimmons. Adequate analytical enforcement methods are available to control the residues of carbon disulfide on persimmons. Based on the risk assessment results, EFSA concludes that the proposed use of mancozeb on persimmons will not result in a consumer exposure exceeding the toxicological reference value and therefore is unlikely to pose a consumer health risk.
