4 June 1996: PESTICIDES - Amendments to Pesticide Residue Regulations

4th June 1996

New Pesticide Residue Regulations

The controls on pesticides in Great Britain have been modified following the making of the Pesticide (Maximum Residue Levels in Crops, Food and Feeding Stuffs)(Amendment) Regulations 1996 (SI 1996 No 1487)

They implement into Great Britain the requirements of Directives 95/38, 95/39 and 95/61. The first 2 of these set Community maximum residue levels for the pesticide concerned for the first time and Directive 95/61 sets Community maximum residue levels in substitution for levels (known as open positions) which were set for the pesticides concerned by Directive 93/58.

The Regulations make certain additional changes including add spices to the list of groups of products to which Community maximum residue levels apply.
