Council Minutes, 27 July 2009
The following is an extract from the minutes of the General Affairs and External Relations Council meeting
The Council decided not to oppose adoption of a regulation by the Commission on maximum residue levels of certain pesticides in or on food and feed of plant and animal origin.
The draft regulation concerns azoxystrobin, atrazine, chlormequat, cyprodinil, dithiocarbamatse, fludioxonil, fluroxypyr, indoxacarb, mandipropamid, potassium tri-iodide, spirotetramat, tetraconazole and thiram.
The draft regulation is subject to the regulatory procedure with scrutiny, allowing the Council to oppose the adoption of legal acts by the Commission. Now that the Council has given the go-ahead, the Commission may adopt the regulation, unless the European Parliament objects.
