The document summarizes the following:

  • Modification of the existing maximum residue levels (MRLs) for the active substance sulfoxaflor in lettuce and salad plants (except lettuce), beans with pods, and peas without pods;
  • The maximum residue limits for lettuces and other salad plants including Brassicaceae, (except lettuces) are proposed as 0.2 mg/kg; beans with pods 0.15 mg/kg and peas without pods 0.03 mg/kg;
  • The data was found to be sufficient to derive MRL proposals for all crops under consideration;
  • Adequate analytical methods are available to control the residues under consideration at the validated limit of quantification (LOQ) of 0.01 mg/kg;
  • Risk assessment results indicated the short-term and long-term intake of residues is unlikely to present a risk to consumer health.
