Maximum residue limits – variations

Australia only

(April 2019)

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 2019 MRL harmonisation proposal is now closed and assessment of all MRL harmonisation requests has now commenced.
