Food Safety/Databases/Maximum limits

Maximum limits


The maximum limits for contaminants and other parameters relevant to health can be found in various national and European Union legal instruments. To make them easier to find, a database has been created, providing up-to-date information tables, showing information as it appears in the corresponding legal documents. However, this database is not of legal nature, and the original regulations in force both at the national and the European level should be consulted.

Accessing the database search function

There are also other databases that show maximum limits for different groups of contaminants, residues or other parameters relevant to health, which, therefore, have not been included in AECOSAN’s database:

Maximum residue limits for veterinary medicinal products - Spanish Agency of Medicines and Medical Devices

Food Contact Materials - European Commission

Pesticides - European Commission
