Proposed Maximum Residue Limit: Pendimethalin (PMRL2023-08). Language(s): English and French. Number of pages: 8
The objective of the notified document PMRL2023-08 is to consult on the listed maximum residue limits (MRLs) for pendimethalin that have been proposed by Health Canada's Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA).
MRL (ppm)1 Raw Agricultural Commodity (RAC) and/or Processed Commodity
0.1 Pome fruits (crop group 11-09)2; stone fruits (crop group 12-09)3
1 ppm = parts per million
2 The proposed MRL of 0.1 ppm in/on pome fruits (crop group 11-09) will replace the currently established MRL of 0.1 ppm in/on individual commodities within this crop group.
3 The proposed MRL of 0.1 ppm in/on stone fruits (crop group 12-09) will replace the currently established MRL of 0.1 ppm in/on individual commodities within this crop group.
The commodities included in the listed crop groups/subgroups can be found on 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 section of the Canada.ca website.
