The European Commission adopted a proposal for a regulation harmonising European maximum residue levels of pesticides permitted in products of plants and animals on March 14th 2003. When the regulation is adopted, after a transitional phase-in period individual EU member states will no longer be able to set their own national MRLs in the absence of Community MRLs. Comment: ACP exporters dealing with markets which had nationally established MRLs will need to verify that their production will meet the harmonised standards in order to ensure that exports are still permitted.
