Maximum residue limits – variations

Australia only

Page last updated May 2022. 

Countries around the world use different agricultural and veterinary (agvet) chemicals because they deal with different pests, diseases, climate and other environmental factors.

Maximum residue limits for agvet chemicals can be varied to align with international
trading partners if there is no public health and safety risk.

The call for requests for the 2022 MRL harmonisation proposal is now closed. 

FSANZ is preparing the Administrative ​Assessment for this proposal and the status of the proposal will be regularly updated on the FSANZ Workplan.
