The key points are summarized as follows:

  • Assessment of the occurrence of metobromuron residues in plants, processed commodities, rotational crops, and livestock;
  • Conclusions derived in the framework of Commission Regulation (EU) No 188/2011, as well as the European authorizations, was considered;
  • Safety evaluation shows no apparent risk to consumers, certain information required by the regulatory framework was missing;
  • Consumer risk assessment is considered indicative only and all MRL proposals derived require further consideration by risk managers.
