ANSES has recently published recommendations for pesticide residues with a study of dietary risk to the consumer. A list of 76 priority pesticides has been defined.

The evaluation focused on products of plant , animal but also on water intended for human consumption and is based on the following data:

  • Results of monitoring plans 2011 pesticide residues DGCCRF
  • Results of monitoring plans 2010 and 2011 of pesticide residues in water intended for human consumption DGS
  • Results of monitoring plans 2010 pesticide residues in foodstuffs of animal origin DGAL
  • Food consumption data of the Inca 2 study (AFSSA)
  • The MRLs for pesticide residues of Regulation 396/2005 and Regulation 37/2010
  • The toxicological reference values
  • Regulation 788/2012 concerning the multiannual Community control program for 2013,2014 and 2015

These data have been compiled and statistical analysis taking into account both chronic dietary risk and acute risk was used to establish a priority list of 76 residues.
Scale prioritization of these pesticides identified as priorities for surveillance, has been established in this notice . This scale ranges from level 2 to level 6 , level 2 corresponding to a low risk to high uncertainty and level 6 corresponding to a chronic risk and / or acute clearly identified and associated with low uncertainty.
