PESTICIDES – Council discussions: Residue levels of thiacloprid

The following is an extract from the minutes of the Agriculture and Fisheries Council meeting:

The Council decided not to oppose the adoption of a Commission regulation amending Annex II to Regulation (EC) No 396/2005 of the European Parliament and of the Council as regards thiacloprid (9486/16).

Regulation (EC) No 396/2005 lays down rules on maximum residue levels of pesticides in or on food and feed of plant and animal origin.

The adopted amendment modifies the existing maximum residue levels of thiacloprid in honey and other apiculture products based on an assessment of the European Food Safety Authority, setting it at the level of 0.2 mg/kg on the basis of the available residue trials.
