An interim approach for the establishment of maximum residue limits for residues of active substances contained in biocidal products for food and feed and specific migration limits in food contact materials.

Dear All,

Please find attached a HSE update on the outcome of the discussions at the 15-17 March meeting of the biocides Competent Authorities, regarding establishing an interim approach to setting MRLs for biocides residues. I have also attached the final version of the Commission’s paper, which was agreed at the meeting.

IWS have been working very closely to monitor the current issues relating to our product Xziox contributing to the chlorates & chlorites left on produce via the water treatment. We have been working with our current sites using Xziox & also the HSE whilst the discussions continued to come to a conclusion on the establishment of maximum residue limits for residues of active substances contained in biocidal products.

As it stands, there is currently no default limit setting for MRLS for biocides residues within the U.K.
IWS will continue to monitor these levels and keep our customers informed of our findings as well as the HSE, should this changed we will notify our customers immediately.
I hope you find the above helpful & we thank you again for your continued custom.

Many thanks
