On January 27th, 2022, the U.S Federal Register published an article by the U.S Environmental Protection Agency on “Cyprodinil; Pesticide Tolerances, 40 CFR 180.532, 87 FR 4156”.
The scope of the document is briefly summarized as follows:
- The residues of Cyprodinil in or on the raw agricultural commodities: brassica, leafy greens, subgroup 4–16B, except watercress; celtuce, fennel, florence, fresh leaves and stalk kohlrabi, leaf petiole vegetable subgroup, lemon/lime subgroup, etc;
- Pesticide tolerances are established on leafy greens, subgroup 4–16B at 10 ppm; celtuce at 30 ppm; fennel, florence, fresh leaves and stalk at 30 ppm; kohlrabi at 1 ppm; leaf petiole vegetable subgroup 22B at 30 ppm; leafy greens subgroup 4–16A;
- Existing tolerances are removed as unnecessary due to the establishment of the above tolerances for spanish limes, turnips and greens, and others;
- Risk assessment data ensures the safety of infants and the general population is adequately protected based on the toxicological profile and dietary exposure;
- Short‐term and long‐term intake of residues resulting from the use of tolerance on these food products is unlikely to pose a health risk to consumers.
The regulation is effective from January 27th, 2022.
