Chlorate MRLs: Best Practice Guidance for FBOs

The EU chlorate MRLs Regulation 749/2020 has been in force since 28/6/20. The UK’s CFA-led Food & Biocides Industry Group (FBIG) and its partners secured in the Regulation more rational MRLs, inclusion of the EU legal definition of ‘processed’ foods, and special rules for processed foods.

Additional guidance for other processed/multicomponent foods is being developed by FBIG.
