Comments:

An MRL of 5 mg/kg applies to table grapes. This is a Codex MRL which is acceptable, provided that the Argentine authorities do not consider there to be an unacceptable risk from the residue.

MRL Notes:

The MRL for mancozeb is for the combined residue arising from the use of dithiocarbamates. The residue is determined as carbon disulfide evolved during acid digestion, and is expressed as mg/kg carbon disulfide. The MRL is temporary.

MRL Notes:

Tolerances are established for residues of mancozeb (a coordination product of zinc ion and maneb (manganese ethylenebisdithiocarbamate)), including its metabolites and degradates. Compliance with these tolerance levels is to be determined by measuring only those mancozeb residues convertible to and expressed in terms of the degradate carbon disulfide.
