At the end of 2020, the Crop Production Department of China’s Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs (MARA) released a new draft national food safety standard, outlining maximum residue limits for 75 pesticides (including 2,4-D-dimethylamine) in foods. The draft standard provides 212 maximum residue limits (MRLs) for a variety of fruits, vegetables, grains, oilseeds, and plant-based beverages. China is expected to notify the draft MRLs to the WTO SPS Committee following the domestic comment period.
Comments could have been sent to the Secretariat of the National Committee of Pesticide Residue Limit Standards at email@example.com. The comment deadline was December 22, 2020.
