These Regulations specify the maximum levels of pesticide residues which crops, food and feeding stuffs may contain.
These Regulations are regularly amended to update the definition of ‘Pesticide MRL Regulations’ to include the new European Regulations that add to or change the pesticide Maximum Residue Levels (MRLs) for food and feed.
Each new amendment revokes the previous amendment which was European Communities (Pesticide Residues) (Amendment) (No. 2) Regulations 2017 (SI 549/2017).
