Pesticide aluminum phosphide in or on oilseeds (ICS: 65.020, 65.100, 67.040, 67.200)
Proposed Maximum Residue Limit: Aluminum Phosphide (PMRL2020-25). Language(s): English and French. Number of pages: 5
The objective of the notified document PMRL2020-25 is to consult on the listed maximum residue limit (MRL) for phosphine (by-product of aluminum phosphide) that has been proposed by Health Canada's Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA).
MRL(ppm)1 Raw Agricultural Commodity (RAC) and/or Processed Commodity
0.1 Oilseeds (crop group 20) (revised)2
1 ppm = parts per million
2 The proposed MRL is intended to replace the current MRLs of 0.1 ppm for safflower seeds, sesame seeds and sunflower seeds.
An MRL is 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.
