The studies indicate that the active substance is stable under various applications such baking sterilization and pasteurization. The available residue trials are sufficient to derive an MRL proposal of 1.5 mg/kg for use on apricots and peaches. The toxicological profile of tebufenozide was assessed under Directive 91/414/EEC and an ADI (Acceptable Daily Intake) of 0.02mg/kg body weight was derived. Estimated long term dietary intake for toddler was derived at 69% ADI. Consumer risk assessment and long-term exposure assessment to toxicological reference pose no risk to consumer health.
