On September 24th, 2021, The European Food Safety Authority published a report on “Setting of Import Tolerances for Flutianil in various crops” in accordance with Article 6 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005.

The scope of the document outlines the following:

  • The samples that were analyzed for Flutianil in line with the current residue definition for enforcement and risk assessment;
  • Proposed MRL’s for Apple (0.15 mg/kg), Cherries (0.40 mg/kg), Strawberries (0.30 mg/kg), Cucumber 0.03 mg/kg) and Courgettes (0.03 mg/kg);
  • For melons, data gaps were identified which precluded the derivation of MRL proposals;
  • Adequate analytical methods are available to control the residues of Flutianil in the commodities under consideration of LOQ of 0.01 mg/kg;
  • Short‐term and long‐term intake of residues resulting from the use of Flutianil according to the reported agricultural practices is unlikely to present a risk to consumer health;
  • Consumer risk assessment could not be finalized with regard to the potential presence of soil metabolite OC 56635 in rotational crops.
