China: China Notifies Draft Maximum Residue Limits for Pesticides in Food (as SPS 1065)

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

On February 19, 2018, China notified the World Trade Organization of draft standards on maximum residue limits (MRLs) for 107 pesticides as SPS/N/CHN/1065. The deadline for comment submissions is April 20, 2018. The proposed date of entry is yet to be determined. Comments can be sent to China’s SPS Enquiry Point at sps@aqsiq.gov.cn. Please note that similar to other Draft MRLs recently notified to the WTO, these limits will not come into effect until the next revision of the China National Food Safety Standard for Maximum Residue Limits for Pesticides in Foods (GB 2763). Until then, the limits set forth in GB2763-2016 remain in effect. The following report contains an unofficial translation of this draft standard.
