The objective of the notified document PMRL2023-13 is to consult on the listed maximum residue limits (MRLs) for carfentrazone-ethyl that have been proposed by Health Canada's Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA).

MRL (ppm)1 Raw Agricultural Commodity (RAC) and/or Processed Commodity2,3

0.1              Bulb vegetables (crop group 3-07); leafy vegetables (crop group 4-13); fruiting vegetables (crop group 8-09); pome fruits (crop group 11-09); stone fruits (crop group 12-09); bushberries (crop subgroup 13-07B); rapeseeds (crop subgroup 20A) (revised); sunflowers (crop subgroup 20B) (revised); leaf petioles vegetables (crop subgroup 22B); fresh peppermint leaves, dried peppermint leaves, fresh spearmint leaves, dried spearmint leaves

1 ppm = parts per million

2 The current established MRL of 0.8 ppm for the milling fractions of barley, buckwheat, millet, oat, rye, triticale, and wheat will be expired, as the processed fractions will be covered by the established MRL of 0.1 ppm for the raw agricultural commodities (RAC).

3 The commodities of edible leaved chrysanthemum, Chinese mustard cabbage, mustard spinach and pepper hybrids, all at the established MRL of 0.1 ppm, will be expired to reflect recent changes in crop grouping terminology.
