China issues MRLs for 85 pesticides in food

China Ministry of Agriculture (MOA) and Ministry of Health (MOH) have recently issued the National Food Safety Standard GB 28260-2011, regulating residue definition, maximum residue limits (MRLs) and acceptable daily intakes (ADI) of 85 pesticides in food. The Standard applies to the limitation-related food and agriculture products, which will come into force from April 1, 2012.

Among the 181 MRLs levels of 85 pesticides, 13 MRLs are compliance with the standard CAC (Codex Alimentarius Commission), and the rest 168 are not equivalent. The Codex Alimentarius is a joint U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization/World Health Organization food standards program, and it is recognized as an international food safety standards-setting organization in trade agreements.
