Pesticide cypermethrin in or on various commodities (ICS Codes: 65.020, 65.100, 67.040, 67.080
Proposed Maximum Residue Limit: Cypermethrin (PMRL2019-09). Language(s): English and French. Number of pages: 6 and 7
The objective of the notified document PMRL2019-09 is to consult on the listed maximum residue limits (MRLs) for cypermethrin that have been proposed by Health Canada's Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA).
MRL (ppm)1 Raw Agricultural Commodity (RAC) and/or Processed Commodity
2.0 Cherries (crop subgroup 12-09A); lowbush blueberries
0.82 Bushberries (crop subgroup 13-07B, except lowbush blueberries); caneberries (crop subgroup 13-07A)
0.32,3 Low growing berries (crop subgroup 13-07G, except lowbush blueberries)
1 ppm = parts per million
2 Although lowbush blueberry is a commodity in both crop subgroup 13-07B and 13-07G, the proposed crop subgroup MRLs do not apply to lowbush blueberries, as a separate MRL is being proposed for this commodity.
3 As strawberries are included in crop subgroup 13-07G, it is proposed that the currently established MRL of 0.2 ppm for strawberries be replaced by the MRL of 0.3 ppm for the commodities in crop subgroup 13-07G.
MRLs are proposed for each commodity included in the listed crop groupings in accordance with the Residue Chemistry Crop Groups webpage (https://www.canada.ca/en/health-canada/services/consumer-product-safety/pesticides-pest-management/public/protecting-your-health-environment/pesticides-food/residue-chemistry-crop-groups.html) in the Pesticides and Pest Management section of the Canada.ca website.
