EU extends residue testing

The European Commission has added more active ingredients to the EU co-ordinated survey of pesticide residues in food. In its final details for the 2009 survey, the Commission lists 115 ais, plus a further 23 that may be included in testing on a voluntary basis. The 23 will become part of the compulsory programme in 2010, which will be expanded to cover 165 ais in total. The figures represent an expansion to the Commission's original plans, which were to increase the number to 103 ais in 2009 and 128 ais in 2010 ( Agrow No 538, p 13).
