MRL Annex Descriptions
Annex 1 includes a list of all the food and feed commodities for which MRLs are set under Regulation 396/2005. This includes a number of commodities for which statutory MRLs will be set for the first time. The full list of Annex 1 commodities has been published via Commission Regulation 212/2013.
Annex 2 mostly contains ‘definitive’ MRLs that were previously set under EC MRL Directives following the review of active substances under EC Regulation 1107/2009.
Annex 3a contains ‘temporary’ MRLs, mostly for active substances that are awaiting a decision on inclusion under Annex I of Regulation 1107/2009.
Annex 3b contains ‘temporary’ MRLs for the active substances listed in Annex 2 in combination with the new food and feed commodities.
Annex 4 lists active substances for which MRLs are not required, because residues arising from use of the active substance are indistinguishable from natural background levels or other sources.
