19 November 1999: PARNUTS - Infant Formula And Follow-On Formula

JFSSG Letter, 19 November 1999

Infant Formula And Follow-On Formula

The EC has adopted Directive 1999/50/EC, which amends Directive 91/321/EEC. This directive sets a maximum limit of 0.01 mg/kg for individual pesticides in infant formula and follow-on formula, ready for consumption. The UK is required to introduce national measures to implement this rule by 30 June 2000. Trade in non-compliant products will be prohibited from 1 July 2002. The JFSSG has issued draft regulations for consultation. The Regulations would only apply to England, but similar separate legislation is being developed for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
