Pesticide fluopyram in or on various commodities (ICS codes: 65.020, 65.100, 67.040, 67.060, 67.140, 67.200)
Proposed Maximum Residue Limit: Fluopyram (PMRL2022-09). Language(s): English and French. Number of pages: 9 and 10
The objective of the notified document PMRL2022-09 is to consult on the listed maximum residue limits (MRLs) for fluopyram that have been proposed by Health Canada's Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA).
MRL (ppm)1 Raw Agricultural Commodity (RAC) and/or Processed Commodity
0.5 Cereal grains (crop group 15), except rice and corn2,3
0.3 Rapeseeds (crop subgroup 20A) (revised)4
0.03 Green coffee beans
0.02 Field corn, popcorn grain2
0.01 Sweet corn kernels plus cob with husks removed2
1 ppm = parts per million.
2 The MRLs are proposed to replace the currently established 1.5 ppm MRL for cereal grains (crop group 15), except rice.
3 It is proposed that the existing MRL of 2.0 ppm for wheat bran and germ be revoked. Following the revocation of the 2.0 ppm MRL for wheat bran and germ, these wheat commodities will be regulated under the proposed cereal grains (crop group 15) MRL of 0.5 ppm.
4 The MRL is proposed to replace the currently established MRL of 1.8 ppm for rapeseeds (crop subgroup 20A) (revised).
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.
