HCMC – The European Union (EU) has introduced stricter regulations concerning the maximum residue levels (MRL) for Oxamyl on various agricultural products, with effect from May 11, 2024, said the Vietnam Trade Section to Belgium, Luxembourg, and the EU.

The EU has reduced the maximum Oxamyl residue levels on animal and plant products to 0.001mg per kilogram from the previous range of 0.01-0.05 mg per kilogram.

The MRL is set at 0.005 mg per kilogram for avocado, 0.002 mg per kilogram for tomato, and 0.005 mg per kilogram for all types of cereals, including rice, as well as animal products.

Under the new regulations, cocoa beans are the only product permitted to have the new MRL for Oxamyl at 0.01 mg per kilogram.

The Vietnam Trade Section to Belgium, Luxembourg, and the EU said that the EU’s updated regulations on MRL will directly impact agricultural products imported from Vietnam. Therefore, Vietnamese exporters are urged to stay informed about these new regulations to make necessary adjustments.
