1                Name of Instrument

                  This Instrument is the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code — Standard 1.4.2 Maximum Residue Limits Amendment Instrument
No. APVMA 1,
2011.

2                Commencement

                  Pursuant to subsection 82(8) of the Food Standards Australia New Zealand Act 1991, this Amendment Instrument commences on the day a copy of it is published in the Gazette.

 

Note:      A copy of the variations made by the Amendment Instrument was published in the Commonwealth of Australia Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals Gazette No. APVMA 16 of
16 August 2011.

3                Object

                  The object of this Instrument is for the APVMA to make variations to Standard 1.4.2 — Maximum Residue Limits of the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code to include or change maximum residue limits pertaining to agricultural and veterinary chemical products. 

4                Interpretation

                  In this Instrument: —

APVMA means the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority established by section 6 of the Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals (Administration) Act 1992; and

Principal Instrument means Standard 1.4.2 — Maximum Residue Limits of the Australia New Zealand Food Standard Code as defined in Section 4 of the Food Standards Australia New Zealand Act 1991 being the code published in Gazette No. P 27 on 27 August 1987 together with any amendments of the standards in that code.  The whole of the Australia New Zealand Food Standard Code (including Standard 1.4.2) was further published in Gazette P 30 of 20 December 2000[1].
