New EU MRLs for Chlorpyrifos and Chlorpyrifos-methyl

The approvals of the active substances Chlorpyrifos and Chlorpyrifos-methyl were not renewed by the European Commission.

All existing authorisations for plant protection products containing Chlorpyrifos and Chlorpyrifos-methyl have been revoked.

Thus the european authorities reduced the MRLs of chlorpyrifos and chlorpyrifos-methyl at the LOD for all food commodities.

The new MRLs will apply from 13 November 2020. The corresponding Regulation and its corrigendum can be found here below:

Commission Regulation (EU) 2020/1085
