Reasoned opinion of EFSA: Modification of the existing MRL for thiacloprid in cotton seed

Parma, Italy
August 27, 2010

Question number: EFSA-Q-2010-00905
Adopted: 26 August 2010


According to Article 6 of the Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, Spain, herewith referred to as the Evaluating Member State (EMS), received an application from Bayer CropScience to modify the existing MRL for thiacloprid in cotton seed. In order to accommodate for the intended use of thiacloprid in the Southern Europe, it is proposed to raise the existing MRL in cotton seed from 0.02 mg/kg (set at the limit of quantification) to 0.2 mg/kg. Spain drafted an evaluation report according to Article 8 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005 which was submitted to the European Commission and forwarded to EFSA on 7 June 2010.
