Pesticide EU-MRLs Database


New rules on pesticide residues are applicable as from 1 September 2008 in the EU. The new rules set fully harmonised Maximum Residue Levels (MRLs) of pesticides.

A newly developed database can be consulted on Commissions website to search for the MRLs applicable to each pesticide and to each crop. With a user friendly search tool the MRLs can be viewed by crop, by crop group, by crop code or by pesticide in all EU languages. A link is made to the legislation where the MRL is adopted and the history of changes to the MRLs can be followed. The information can be exported in excel format.
