COMMISSION REGULATION (EU) 2024/246

of 16 January 2024

amending Annex IV to Regulation (EC) No 396/2005 of the European Parliament and of the Council as regards Pythium oligandrum strain M1, Trichoderma atroviride strain AGR2 and Trichoderma atroviride strain AT10

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Regulation (EC) No 396/2005 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 February 2005 on maximum residue levels of pesticides in or on food and feed of plant and animal origin and amending Council Directive 91/414/EEC (1), and in particular Article 5(1) and Article 14(1) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

For Pythium oligandrum strain M1, Trichoderma atroviride strain AGR2 and Trichoderma atroviride strain AT10, no specific maximum residue levels (‘MRLs’) have been set. Therefore, for those active substances the default value of 0,01 mg/kg laid down in Article 18(1), point (b), of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005 applies.

(2)

Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2022/2314 (2) renewed the approval of the active substance Pythium oligandrum strain M1. During the peer review of the pesticide risk assessment of the active substance under Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council (3), the European Food Safety Authority (‘the Authority’) concluded (4) that some information was not available as regards the dietary risk assessment for consumers and that further consideration by risk managers was required. As set out in the renewal report for that active substance (5) in the context of the risk assessment under Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009, Pythium oligandrum strain M1 is not pathogenic to humans, is not expected to produce toxins that are relevant for human health and the risk to humans through metabolites is negligible. Taking into account the peer review of the pesticide risk assessment of the active substance Pythium oligandrum strain M1, the renewal report and Article 5 and Article 14(2), points (a), (c) and (d), of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, there is no need to establish MRLs for this active substance and it is therefore appropriate to include Pythium oligandrum strain M1 in Annex IV to Regulation (EC) No 396/2005.

(3)

Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2023/216 (6) approved the low-risk active substance Trichoderma atroviride strain AGR2. During the peer review of the pesticide risk assessment of the active substance under Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009, the Authority concluded (7) that some information was not available as regards the dietary risk assessment for consumers and that further consideration by risk managers was required. As set out in the review report for that active substance (8) in the context of the risk assessment under Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009, Trichoderma atroviride strain AGR2 is not pathogenic to humans, is not expected to produce toxins that are relevant for human health and the risk to humans through metabolites is negligible. Taking into account the peer review of the pesticide risk assessment of the active substance Trichoderma atroviride strain AGR2, the review report and Article 5 and Article 14(2), points (a), (c) and (d), of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, there is no need to establish MRLs for this active substance and it is therefore appropriate to include Trichoderma atroviride strain AGR2 in Annex IV to Regulation (EC) No 396/2005.

(4)

Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2023/199 (9) approved the low-risk active substance Trichoderma atroviride strain AT10. During the peer review of the pesticide risk assessment of the active substance under Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009, the Authority concluded (10) that some information was not available as regards the dietary risk assessment for consumers and that further consideration by risk managers was required. As set out in the review report for that active substance (11) in the context of the risk assessment under Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009, Trichoderma atroviride strain AT10 is not pathogenic to humans, is not expected to produce toxins that are relevant for human health and the risk to humans through metabolites is negligible. Taking into account the peer review of the pesticide risk assessment of the active substance Trichoderma atroviride strain AT10, the review report and Article 5 and Article 14(2), points (a), (c) and (d), of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, there is no need to establish MRLs for this active substance and it is therefore appropriate to include Trichoderma atroviride strain AT10 in Annex IV to Regulation (EC) No 396/2005.

(5)

Regulation (EC) No 396/2005 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(6)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Feed,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1
