Beginning with January 1(st),1992 a system came into force in the European Union for the establishment of maximum residue limits (MRLs) for veterinary drug residues in animal derived food (Council Regulation No. 2377/90/EEC). The setting of MRLs involves the classification of veterinary drugs according to their toxicological potency and/or the validity of the toxicological and analytical data available. Due to insufficient toxicological information no safe MRLs could be established for a number of substances which, as a consequence, were recently prohibited in the European Union for administration to food producing animals. Among the substances banned are some which, paradoxically, are still approved for use as additives in feedstuffs (e. g. ipronidazol). In order to avoid contradictory drug regulations and to assure consumer safety, the European Commission initiated the elaboration of an amendment of Council Directive No. 87/153/EEC. The draft of the amended Commission Directive specifies for the first time a procedure for the establishment of MRLs for feed additives in animal derived food. It is based on the ADI-concept (Acceptable Daily Intake) and on standard food packages similar to those used for the safety assessment of veterinary drugs. This paper explains the principles underlying the establishment of an ADI and the setting of MRLs for marker residues in target tissues and outlines the new specific requirements suggested for the safety evaluation of feed additives.
