EU publishes full list of new EU MRLs
The European Commission has published the full list of final and temporary EU maximum residue limits (MRLs) that will apply from this month under new EU rules (see this issue). The MRLs are listed in the latest revisions of Annexes II, III and IV to the EU pesticide MRL Regulation (396/2005). Annex II contains final EU-wide MRLs that have been set for specific pesticide/crop uses. Annex III lists temporary MRLs that will apply for certain uses until final EU-wide MRLs have been established. Annex IV contains active ingredients for which MRLs are not required. The revised Annexes have been issued as EU Regulation 839/2008 and are available on the EU Official Journal website: http://eur-lex.europa.eu/JOHtml.do?uri=OJ:L:2008:234:SOM:EN:HTML.
