Policy Developments

  • On 11 December 2018, the EU notified the WTO of draft revised regulations concerning the review of existing maximum residue limits (MRLs) in certain food commodities including wheat products (for 2,5-dichlorobenzoic acid methylester, mandipropamid, prochloraz and profoxydim), which are proposed to be adopted in June 2019 (G/SPS/N/EU/287). On 30 January, a second notification was issued concerning the establishment of new MRLs for chlorate on certain food commodities, including wheat products. The regulation is currently subject to EU's internal feedback and decision-making mechanisms and WTO Members are invited to provide comments by 18 February 2019 (G/SPS/N/EU/302).
