Pesticide Tolerances

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is responsible for regulating the pesticides used by growers to protect crops and for setting limits on the amount of pesticides that may remain in or on foods marketed in the U.S. These limits on pesticides left on foods are called “tolerances” in the U.S. (they are referred to as maximum residue limits, or MRLs, in many other countries). EPA establishes tolerances for each pesticide based on the potential risks to human health posed by that pesticide. EPA publishes petitions to create tolerances, and documents that establish or revoke tolerances, or create exceptions to tolerances.
