Notice - Notification of WTO Members: New GB MRL for oxathiapiprolin amending the GB MRL Statutory Register.
||New GB MRL for oxathiapiprolin amending the GB MRL Statutory Register.
Oxathiapiprolin is an approved active substance in GB. An application was received by the Health and Safety Executive to set a new MRL for spring onion. This was to accommodate a new authorisation of a plant protection product in GB. The new use requires the current MRL to be amended from 0.01* mg/kg to 0.15 mg/kg. The CXL of 2 mg/kg, adopted by Codex in 2017, was also considered within the risk assessment. Following assessment, the CXL of 2 mg/kg is being adopted as a GB MRL. This MRL will accommodate the new GB authorisation and facilitate international trade.
The Evaluation Report/ Reasoned Opinion supporting the new MRL is available at the following link.
The new MRL being adopted is outlined on page 5.
Evaluation of a new MRL for oxathiapiprolin in or on spring onions The residue levels arising in food from the use associated with the CXL results in consumer exposures below the toxicological reference values and therefore harmful effects on human health are not expected. The CXL can be adopted as a GB MRL.
