EU revises crop list in MRL rules
The European Commission has revised the list of crops covered by EU-wide maximum residue limits (MRLs) for pesticides, by including more details on the various species covered within each crop group. The changes have been made to the list in Annex I of the EU pesticide MRL Regulation (396/2005) to improve clarity. The Annex has split into two parts. Part A lists the crops and their derived products. Part B lists related species within each crop, such as the different species of oranges.
