EU: 4 Regulations Amending Pesticide MRLs

The European Commission has published four new amendments last month, all related to pesticide MRLs in food: Commission Regulation (EU) 2016/46, Commission Regulation (EU) 2016/53, Commission Regulation (EU) 2016/60 and Commission Regulation (EU) 2016/67, amending Annexes II, III and V to Regulation (EC) No 396/2005 of the European Parliament and of the Council as regards maximum residue levels for some pesticides, such as oxadixyl, spinetoram, diethofencarb and trifloxystrobin.

In particular, new MRLs have been set for halauxifen-methyl, for which before this amendment, no MRLs were set and only the default value of 0.01 mg/kg applied.
