According to Chapter 6 of EU regulation (EC) no 396/2005, Bayer SAS submitted the amendment application. After evaluation, the European food safety agency concluded that according to the reported agricultural practices, the short-term and long-term intake of residues caused by the use of deltamethrin is unlikely to pose a risk to the health of consumers. Some original reports are as follows:
 
  In accordance with Article 6 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, the applicant Bayer SAS submitted a request to the competent national authority in Austria to modify the existing maximum residue level (MRL) for the active substance deltamethrin in maize/corn. The data submitted in support of the request were found to be sufficient to derive a MRL proposal for maize/corn. Adequate analytical methods for enforcement are available to control the residues of deltamethrin (cis-deltamethrin) in maize/corn under consideration at the validated limit of quantification (LOQ) of 0.01 mg/kg and in animal matrices at the validated LOQ of 0.01 mg/kg. based on the risk assessment results, EFSA concluded that the short-term and long-term intake of residues resulting from the use of deltamethrin according to the reported agricultural practices is unlikely to present a risk to consumer health. The risk assessment shall be regarded as indicative and affected by non-standard uncertainties.
