Maximum residue limits for pesticides
Pesticides are used in food and feed production to protect crops form pest insects, weeds and diseases and to regulate plant growth. The objective of using these plant protection products is to improve the quantity and quality of crops to ensure sufficient food production.
Maximum limits have been determined for pesticide residues. These maximum residue limits (MRL) cannot be exceeded in products used as food or feed. MRLs have been set at a level that safeguards human and animal health.
If no maximum limit has been determined for a specific foodstuff and pesticide residue, the MRL is 0.01 mg/kg.
