  Food Partner Network News On March 25, 2021, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) issued opinions on the review of the current maximum residue level of pinoxaden.

  According to Chapter 12 of Regulation No. 396/2005 of the European Commission, the European Food Safety Agency has reviewed the maximum residue limit of ciproconazole. Although no obvious risk of pinoxaden to consumers has been found, some information required by the regulatory framework is lacking. Therefore, consumer risk assessment is only considered indicative, and some of the MRL recommendations put forward by EFSA still require further consideration by risk managers.
   part of the original report is as follows:
  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 pinoxaden. To assess the occurrence of pinoxaden residues in plants, processed commodities, rotational crops and livestock, EFSA considered the conclusions derived in the framework of Commission Regulation (EU) No 188/2011, the MRLs established by the Codex Alimentarius Commission as well as the European authorisations reported by Member States and the UK (including the supporting residues data). based on the assessment of the available data, MRL proposals were derived and a co nsumer risk assessment was carried out. Although no apparent risk to consumers was identified, some information required by the regulatory framework was missing. Hence, the consumer risk assessment is co< em/>nsidered indicative only and some MRL proposals derived by EFSA still require further consideration by risk managers.
