According to the available data, the EU food safety agency has evaluated the MRLs and conducted a consumer risk assessment. It was found that the MRLs were not supported by sufficient data, and it was determined that several commodities might pose chronic and acute risks to consumers. Therefore, risk managers need to consider further. Some original reports are 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 phosmet. 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). based on the available data, EFSA assessed the CXLs and a consumer risk assessment was carried out. The CXLs were found to be supported by inadequate data and a possible chronic and acute risk to consumers was identified for several commodities. Hence, further consideration by risk managers is needed.
