FOOTNOTES:

(X)
As from 1st January 1996.

(1)
Paddy or rough rice, husked rice and semi-milled or wholly milled rice.

(2)
Other cereals do not include rice.

(3)
Levels are measured on fat, except in the case of foods with a fat content of 10% or less by weight.

In these cases the residue is related to the total weight of the boned foodstuff and the MRL is one tenth of the value given in the table, but must be no less than 0.01 mg/kg.

(4)
These levels are for fresh raw cow’s milk and fresh whole cream cow’s milk expressed on the whole milk.

(5)
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.

(6)
Birds' eggs in shell (other than eggs for hatching) and whole egg products and egg yolk products (whether fresh, dried or otherwise prepared).

(7)
All meat except poultry meat.

(8)
Poultry meat only.

(9)
All meat except liver and kidney.

(10)
Ruminant liver.

(11)
All meat except ruminant liver.

(12)
For animal products MRLs relate to cyhalothrin (sum of isomers).

Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)
These Regulations, which do not extend to Northern Ireland, are made under section 2(2) of the European Communities Act 1972 and amend the Pesticides (Maximum Residue Levels in Crops, Food and Feeding Stuffs) Regulations 1994 (“the principal Regulations” ) (S.I. 1994/1985). They specify maximum levels of pesticide residues which may be left in crops, food and feeding stuffs in accordance with Council Directives 94/29/EC (O.J. No. L189, 23.7.94, p.67) and 94/30/EC (O.J. No. L189, 23.7.94, p.70). Maximum levels for these pesticide residues have not previously been imposed by Community Law.
Regulation 4 confers on those charged with offences relating to residues the subject of Community law requirements the same defence of due diligence as section 22 of the Food and Environment Protection Act 1985 confers on those charged with offences relating to residues the subject of domestic law requirements.
Regulation 6 removes maximum levels which were included in Part 1 of Schedule 2 to the principal Regulations by virtue of powers contained in the Food and Environment Protection Act 1985 (c. 48) and which are now included in Part 2 of that Schedule.
Regulation 7 implements a corrigenda amendment (O.J. No. L219, 24.8.94) to Council Directive 93/58/EC (O.J. No. L211, 23.8.93) which was necessary because a maximum level of Iprodione which should have been specified for Grapefruit was specified for Lemons.
Regulation 8 removes maximum levels which are not required by Community law and should not have been included in Part 2 of Schedule 2 to the principal Regulations.
Schedule 2 to these Regulations include maximum levels for Carbendazim and Captafol which, except for tea, were not but should have been included in Part 2 of Schedule 2 to the principal Regulations.
Maximum levels in these Regulations which are followed by an * will, when inserted into Part 2 of Schedule 2 to the principal Regulations, connect with the explanation of that symbol given there.
The compliance cost assessment of the effect that this instrument would have on the cost of business is available in the Library of each House of Parliament.
