According to Article 12 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has reviewed the Maximum Residue Levels (MRLs) currently established at European level for the pesticide active substance propargite. Although this active substance is no longer authorised within the European Union, MRLs were established by the Codex Alimentarius Commission (CXLs). Based on the assessment of the available data, EFSA assessed the CXLs. CXLs were found not to be adequately supported by data and a consumer risk assessment could not be carried out. Hence, further consideration by risk managers is needed.
