Argentina seeks Codex MRL rule revisions

Argentine authorities have won approval for their proposals to revise procedures for revoking maximum residue limits (MRLs) at the Codex Alimentarius Commission’s Committee on Pesticide Residues (CCPR), the Argentine national animal and vegetable health service, the Senasa, says. The service gained support from India and China, it says. The Senasa argued that rules were “inconsistent” and the lowering of limits “lacked a scientific basis”. Argentina has been re-elected to the presidency of the electronic working group at the CCPR. The vote took place earlier this month at the 41st working group meeting in Beijing. The Senasa is the competent authority and it says that it maintained its presidency in recognition of its work on the group over the past 12 months.
