Argentina sets new MRLs

Argentine authorities have set new maximum residue limits (MRLs) for pesticide active ingredients for several crops for consumption in Argentina. The national plant health inspection service, the Senasa, has issued Resolution 934/10 setting MRLs for imported and nationally produced agricultural products/sub-products for domestic consumption, and for products that have not traditionally been cultivated in Argentina. The resolution, which created thre eannexes listing pesticide products and their requirements, was issued on March 31. National agricultural products and sub-products that have not been traditionally produced (in Argentina), and for which no ai MRLs have been set, will have to meet U.N. FAO Codex Alimentarius set limits. In cases where there is no Codex-set MRL, a default 0.01 mg/kg will be established, corresponding to the method of analysis' detection limit. Codex-set MRLs will be adopted for persistent compounds that are employed as pesticides but not registered as such, and which could be the source of contamination.
