EU: regulation on the maximum residues levels in food approved

The new regulation (400/2014) establishes the coordinated multiannual Community programme for 2015, 2016, and 2017 aimed to ensure the compliance with the maximum residue levels of pesticides and to assess the consumer exposure to pesticide residues in and on foods of plant and animal origin. Regulation (EU) No 788/2012, should be repealed in the interest of legal certainty. It should, however, continue to apply to samples taken in 2013 and 2014.

The new regulation (400/2014) establishes the coordinated multiannual Community programme for 2015, 2016, and 2017, aimed to ensure compliance with maximum residue levels of pesticides and to assess the consumer exposure to pesticide residues in and on food of plant and animal origin. Regulation (EU) No. 788/2012, should be repealed in the interest of legal certainty. It should, however, continue to apply to samples taken in 2013 and 2014.

Since pesticide uses show significant changes over a period of three years, pesticides should be monitored in those foodstuffs over a series of three-year cycles to allow consumer exposure and the application of the European Union legislation to be assessed.

The swine products that must be sampled in the next triennium are swine muscle and fat (2016) and liver (2017).
