OECD develops MRL calculator

The OECD has developed a pesticide maximum residue limit (MRL) calculator with the goal of harmonising the calculation of MRLs among OECD members. It is made up of a “simple to use” Excel spreadsheet that does not require extensive statistical knowledge from the user. The industry association, CropLife International, has welcomed the calculator and stressed its use beyond OECD countries in order to establish a single global procedure for calculating MRLs. In this way, it will not only contribute to the harmonisation of EU and NAFTA procedures but will also help advance the use of a single, global procedure to calculate MRLs and getting national MRLs in line with global food standards set by the Codex Alimentarius Commission, the association adds.
