The scope of the assessment highlights the following:

  • The available analytical methods are sufficient to control the residues of Ametoctradin and derive the MRLs;
  • Applicable to the food commodity at the validated screening detection limit (SDL) of 0.0025 mg/kg;
  • The existing maximum residue limits for Honey is proposed from 0.05 mg/kg to 5 mg/kg;
