Maximum residue limit opinions

This page lists the opinions of the Committee for Medicinal Products for Veterinary Use (CVMP) on maximum residue limit (MRL) evaluations.

The MRL is the maximum concentration of residue accepted by the European Union (EU) in a food product obtained from an animal that has received a veterinary medicine. The assessment of the safety of residues is carried out by the CVMP.

Any MRL opinion issued by the CVMP is published in the first instance as a summary of opinion, in line with the Agency's strategy to improve transparency in the regulatory process. The full opinion is published following the publication of the Commission Regulation formally establishing the MRL status and includes the European public MRL assessment report (EPMAR), which provides more detailed information on the scientific evaluation.

CVMP opinions on MRL evaluations are only published for substances evaluated after the entry into force of Regulation (EC) No 470/2009 on 6 July 2009. For all other substances, the EPMARs (formerly called summary reports) are available.
