EFSA: Review of the existing maximum residue levels for quinoxyfen according to Article 12 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005

Dec 30, 2020

According to Article 12 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, EFSA has reviewed the maximum residue levels (MRLs) currently established at European level for the pesticide active substance quinoxyfen. Although this active substance is no longer authorised within the European Union, MRLs were established by the Codex Alimentarius Commission (codex maximum residue limits; CXLs) and an import tolerance was reported by Member States (including the supporting residues data). Based on the assessment of the available data, EFSA assessed the CXLs and import tolerance requested, and a consumer risk assessment was carried out considering the toxicological reference value established for the first inclusion under Directive 91/414/EEC. All CXLs and import tolerance were found to be adequately supported by data and no risk to consumers was identified.
