OECD releases new MRL calculator
The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development announced March 2 it has developed a maximum residue limit (MRL) calculator pursuant to its goal of harmonizing the calculation of MRLs across the OECD. The calculator is made up of an Excel spreadsheet, which OECD calls "simple to use without requiring extensive statistical knowledge from the user." There is one spreadsheet for single data sets and another for multiple data sets. OECD has published a user guide and statistical white paper on the calculator to assist users.
