  • Maximum residue levels (MRLs) are expressed in milligrammes of residue per kilogramme of food.

  • KEY:

  • * Level at or about the limit of determination.

  • FOOTNOTES:

(1)

Paddy or rough rice, husked rice and semi-milled or wholly milled rice.

(3)

These levels are for fresh raw cow's milk and fresh whole cream cow's milk expressed on the whole milk.

(4)

For preserved, concentrated or sweetened cow's milk; for raw milk and whole cream milk of another animal origin; and for butter, cheese or curd. Whether made from cow's milk or other milk or a combination, the following levels apply:

  • if the fat content is less than 2% by weight, the MRL is taken as half that set for raw milk and whole cream milk;

  • if the fat content is 2% or more by weight, the MRL is expressed in mg/kg of fat and is set at 25 times that set for raw milk and whole cream milk.

These Regulations, which are made under section 2(2) of the European Communities Act 1972, amend the Pesticides (Maximum Residue Levels in Crops, Food and Feeding Stuffs) (Scotland) Regulations 2005 (“the principal Regulations”).

These Regulations implement Commission Directives 2007/27/EC (O.J. No. L 128, 16.05.07, p.31), 2007/28/EC (O.J. No. L 135, 26.05.07, p.6) and 2007/39/EC (O.J. No. L 165, 27.06.07, p.25).

The Regulations come into force, in stages, on 17th and 27th November and 28th December 2007.

The Regulations substitute or insert–

(a)new residue definitions for the pesticides 1-methylcyclopropene, Etoxazole, Indoxacarb, Maleic hydrazide, MCPA and MCPB, Mesosulfuron-methyl, Tolylfluanid and Triticonazole in Schedule 1 to the principal Regulations which identifies the pesticide residues that are taken into account in the measuring of residue levels for each pesticide; and

(b)new maximum residue levels for the pesticides 1-methylcyclopropene, Azoxystrobin, Chlorfenapyr, Diazinon, Etoxazole, Folpet, Indoxacarb, Iprodione, Lambda-cyhalothrin, Maleic hydrazide, MCPA and MCPB, Mesosulfuron-methyl, Metalaxyl, Penconazole, Tolylfluanid, Trifloxystrobin and Triticonazole in Schedule 2 to the principal Regulations.

Regulation 3(1) updates the definition of the Residues Directive to include those amendments up to the time of the making of these Regulations. The substance of the amendments is incorporated into Schedules 1, 2 and 3 of the principal Regulations.

Regulation 3(3)(c) corrects errors in certain maximum residue levels for Penconazole in the Pesticides (Maximum Residue Levels in Crops, Food and Feeding Stuffs) (Scotland) Amendment (No. 2) Regulations 2007 (S.S.I. 2007/306).
