The Korean government sets and enforces maximum residue limits (MRLs) for veterinary drugs in livestock products.

Korea will soon begin reviewing existing veterinary drug MRLs and hopes to finish this process by the end of 2014.

The Korean Food & Drug Administration (KFDA) sets maximum residue limits (MRL) for veterinary drugs (as well as pesticides) in livestock products including meat, dairy products, fish, and honey.

Products with residue levels above the established tolerance are not eligible for entry into commerce. The Ministry of Food, Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries’s Quarantine Inspection Agency enforces these limits in both domestic and imported livestock products.

In addition, there are a dozen veterinary drug compounds which are not to be found at any level in food products.
