OBJECTIVES

  The Residue Control Division monitors pesticide residues and heavy metals in agricultural commodities and field environments. Monitoring data can be further applied in safety assessment and rational pesticide usage evaluation to prevent pesticide and heavy metal residue hazards. The inspection center under the division works to provide service in the inspection of pesticide residue, heavy metals, and dioxins in crops, animal products, and processed products. The inspection center is also responsible for the inspection of pesticide specification for farmer safety and reliability towards pesticide usages. Main missions of the division are as following:

1. To develop pesticide and toxic substances analytical method in agricultural products and agricultural environments to support the establishment of official multi-residue analytical methods.

2. To facilitate in the supervised field trials for pesticide registration and safety assessment for pesticide extension usages as well as support the establishment of maximum residue limits (MRLs) and preharvest intervals (PHIs).

3. To monitor pesticide residues and heavy metals in cultivated domestic rice, vegetables, and fruits as well as promote rational pesticide usage to farmers to ensure the food safety of agricultural products.

4. To coordinate and advise regional inspection centers to ensure the agricultural commodity pesticide  residue monitoring system.

5. To inspect pesticide formulation specification as well as establish national standard analytical methods.

6. To research in inspection of pesticides, heavy metals, dioxins, and pollution substances in agricultural products and aquatic products.
