The 16th Session of the CCPR requested the member governments to
report the existing uses of binapacryl, together with residue data,
and to indicate the foods for which MRLs are needed.
RESIDUES IN FOOD AND THEIR EVALUATION
Binapacryl is not registered for use in Mexico, according to
information submitted to FAO by this country. Information submitted by
the United Kingdom indicated that about 50 tonnes of active ingredient
were used in this country in 1979, of which over 95 percent was used
in apple orchards.
The use patterns of binapacryl submitted by Australia are
summarized in Table 1.

The Australian National Health and Medical Research Council has
recommended the following maximum residue limits for binapacryl:
0.3 mg/kg nectarines, plums
0.5 mg/kg apples, cherries, pears
1 mg/kg peaches
In response to a request made at the 16th Session of the CCPR,
the meeting reviewed information on GAP received from Australia,
Mexico and the United Kingdom.
