Regulation (EC) No 396/2005 of the European Parliament and of the Council describes the basic rules for the setting of Maximum Residue Levels (MRLs) of pesticides in products of plant and animal origin, harmonised for all Member States of the EU. We are assisting several companies in generating numerous application dossiers and forms. We have direct contacts to the authorities and can take care of MRL applications for crops traded within the EU. Furthermore, we take care of the MRL setting for imported products to meet the level of international trade (i.e. import tolerance applications) as well as the setting of world-wide MRLs (i.e. Codex Alimentarius MRLs).
