Reasoned opinion on the review of the existing maximum residue levels (MRLs) for petroleum oils (CAS 92062-35-6) according to Article 12 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005
23 July 2012
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 petroleum oils (CAS 92062-35-6). Considering that this active substance is no longer authorised within the European Union, that no MRLs are established by the Codex Alimentarius Commission, and that no import tolerances were notified to EFSA, residues of petroleum oils (CAS 92062-35-6) are not expected to occur in any plant or animal commodity. Available data were also not sufficient to derive a residue definition or an LOQ for enforcement against potential illegal uses.
