PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question E-002463-17 Infraction par l'Espagne à la directive 2009/128/CE sur l'utilisation durable des pesticides. Une maman de Liège nous a avertis que sa fille de six ans avait subi un choc anaphylactique samedi 27 mars après avoir consommé des fraises espagnoles.

PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question E-002463-17 Infraction par l'Espagne à la directive 2009/128/CE sur l'utilisation durable des pesticides

En cause, la présence trop importante de résidus de pesticides et de substances phytosanitaires. Ce cas choque l'opinion publique et inquiète les consommateurs. Dans son rapport de 2013, l'Agence européenne de sécurité des aliments (EFSA) attirait déjà l'attention sur les fraises, aliment pour lequel les limites autorisées de pesticides sont le plus souvent dépassées en Europe. L'infraction a été constatée pour 2,5 % des fraises contrôlées, et dans largement plus de la moitié des cas, il s'agissait d'un cocktail de pesticides particulièrement toxique. 1. 2. 3.

The major polluters include large-scale fish farms such as Pescanova (Xove-Lago), Stolt Sea Farm (Cervo) — one of the world's largest producers of turbot — and Isidro de la Cal, a trout farm on the Ouro River.

PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question E-007158-14 Lindane pollution in the Gállego river (Aragon, Spain) The regional government in Aragon has told people in communities that take water from the Gállego river to stop drinking tap water because high levels of lindane have been found.

PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question E-007158-14 Lindane pollution in the Gállego river (Aragon, Spain)

This news comes from the communities affected, not from the Aragon government, which, after acknowledging the situation, has still not established where the pollution has come from. Local people have said that this is not the first time that bans have been introduced concerning the Gállego river basin without any public announcements being made. Between 1975 and 1989 a company called Inquinosa dumped up to 160 000 tonnes of toxic waste in Sabiñánigo. This dumping went unchecked.

Recently, 4 000 tonnes of toxic sludge were transferred from the landfill site at Sardas to the one at Bailín. Does the Commission take the view that the EU should provide funding and take extraordinary measures to defuse this chemical time bomb which is threatening the central and lower Ebro basin?

This study presents data of organochlorine levels in tissue and plasma samples of 15 critically endangered Iberian lynx (Lynx pardinus) and other 55 wild carnivores belonging to five species from three natural areas of Spain (Doñana National Park, Sierra Morena and Lozoya River) and explores their relationship with species diet. Highlights ► The Iberian lynx had lower PCB levels than other carnivores. ► Reptile biomass in carnivore diets correlated positively with liver PCB levels. ► Organochlorine levels declined since the 80s in carnivores from southern Spain. ► PCB levels are still of concern in Eurasian otters from industrialized areas.

Science of The Total Environment Volume 420, 15 March 2012, Spatio-temporal evaluation of organic contaminants and their transfo. Abstract This study aims to assess the occurrence, fate and temporal and spatial distribution of anthropogenic contaminants in a river subjected to different pressures (industrial, agricultural, wastewater discharges).

For this purpose, the Henares River basin (central Spain) can be considered a representative basin within a continental Mediterranean climate. As the studied river runs through several residential, industrial and agricultural areas, it would be expected that the chemical water quality is modified along its course. Thereby the selection of sampling points and timing of sample collection are critical factors in the monitoring of a river basin. In this study, six different monitoring campaigns were performed in 2010 and contaminants were measured at the effluent point of the main wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) in the river basin and at five different points upstream and downstream from the WWTP emission point. Highlights. Analytica Chimica Acta Volume 693, Issues 1–2, 5 May 2011, Determination of 40 currently used pesticides in airborne particulate. Abstract A confirmatory and sensitive procedure has been developed for the determination of 40 currently used pesticides (CUPs) in airborne particulate matter (PM 10) at trace level.

The proposed method includes extraction of PM 10-bound pesticides by microwave-assisted extraction (MAE) followed by a gel permeation chromatography (GPC) clean-up and determination by GC–MS/MS. The injection mode and the main parameters in MS/MS were optimized. The matrix effect was also evaluated. Recoveries ranged from 70 to 120% except for pyrimethanil and pirimicarb. Keywords. Talanta Volume 85, Issue 2, 15 August 2011, Determination of 48 pesticides and their main metabolites in water samples by employ. Abstract In this work, a rapid and sensitive analytical multiresidue method has been developed for the simultaneous determination of 48 pesticides and 19 metabolites in waters (tap, leaching and sewage), using liquid chromatography–tandem mass spectrometry (LC–MS/MS) with triple quadrupole in selected reaction monitoring (SRM) mode.

The procedure involves initial single phase extraction of samples with acetonitrile by sonication, followed by liquid–liquid partition aided by “salting out” process using NaCl. Matrix influence on recoveries was evaluated for the three waters. More than 50% of the compound presented very low signal suppression. The method presents good linearity over the range assayed 10–500 μg L−1 and the most frequent detection limits was 0.05 ng mL−1.

Talanta Volume 89, 30 January 2012, Evaluation of pesticide residue contents in fruit juice by solid-phase microextraction and m. Abstract A new method based on the use of SPME followed by the MDGC–MS analysis was developed to determine pesticides in fruit juice. Different pesticide mixture standards (i.e. Mix 101, 13 and 164) were initially analyzed to optimize the separation conditions. To evaluate the advantages of the two-dimensional system over monodimensional GC, a comparative study on relative standard deviations, detection limits and correlation coefficients was carried out.

As a result, selective transfers of some pesticides from the first to the second dimension were at times essential to avoid overlapping. Highlights.

PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question E-000419/2012 Control tests of the maximum residues levels (MRL) On 31 October 2011, a written parliamentary question to the Commission was tabled (E‑009846/2011) regarding the need to adopt measures and controls to ensure that Turkish hazelnuts imported into European Union countries conform to Community plant protection rules during the production phase.

The Commission’s answer, dated 22 November 2011, recognises, with regard to the use of plant protection products, that producers in non-EU countries are only obliged to comply with the rules and procedures authorising the use of plant protection products in their own country. With regard to imports, the Commission points out that hazelnuts from non-EU countries must respect the maximum residue levels established/imposed by Regulation (EC) No 396/2005. Account must be taken of the importance of this for certain EU regions, and especially Catalonia, where virtually 95 % of the total growing area for hazelnuts in Spain and 90 % of total Spanish production is concentrated. 1. 2.
