EU Amends Regulation on Maximum Residue Levels for Eprinomectin in Foodstuffs of Animal Origin


In December 2014, the European Union announced Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No.1390/2014 amending the Annex to Commission Regulation (EU) No.37/2010 with regard to maximum residue levels (MRLs) for pharmacologically active substances in foodstuffs of animal origin.

Bangkok, Thailand, April 11, 2015 --(PR.com)-- MRLs for Eprinomectin in Foodstuffs of Animal Origin

The changes and amendments in the Commission Regulations (EU) No 37/2010 specifically relate to the MRLs for eprinomectin in foodstuffs of animal origin imported into the EU. Details of the changes to table 1 of the Annex to Regulation (EC) No 37/2010 are summarized within the latest SGS SafeGuards bulletin (http://newsletter.sgs.com/eNewsletterPro/uploadedimages/000006/sgs-safeguards-04615-eu-updates-eprinomectin-foodstuffs-%20animal%20origin-a4-en-15.pdf).

The changes in Commission Regulation (EU) No. 1390/2014 of 19 December 2014 relate to table 1 of the Annex to Regulation (EU) No 37/2010 and eprinomectin as an allowed substance, for bovine, ovine and caprine species, applicable to muscle, fat, liver, kidney and milk.

Amendments to Commission Regulation (EU) No. 1390/2014

The changes address the following issues:

- The expiry of the provisional MRLs in Table 1, EU Regulation No 37/2010 for eprinomectin, for Ovine and Caprine species, applicable to muscle, fat, liver, kidney and milk, on 1 July 2014.
- The provisional MRLs now showing in Table 1, EU Regulation No 37/2010 for eprinomectin, set for Ovine and Caprine species, applicable to muscle, fat, liver, kidney and milk, will expire on 30 June 2016.
- Commission Regulation (EU) No. 1390/2014, of 19 December 2014, came into force on 22 February 2015.

Implications for the Food Industry

Foodstuffs of animal origin imported to any EU Member State(s) must meet the revised eprinomectin MRLs, as outlined in Table 1 of Regulation 37/2010. The EU will review these MRLs when the provisional limits expire in June 2016. In addition, you must ensure compliance with Regulation 1390/2014, which came into force in February 2015.
