DAFF MRL Databases

This page provides web links to databases which contain information on the Plant Maximum Residue Limits (MRLs) established in Australia and some export markets for industries supported by the National Residue Survey (NRS).

It includes a section for contract laboratory use, with a link to the list of test chemicals and analyte codes to use when reporting residue results.


Exporters can access MRL information through Summerfruit’s MRL and WHP apps. The apps also include modelling of an appropriate WHP for key chemistry in export markets where the MRL is lower than in Australia. 

The app is available from iTunes or Google Play (search for Summerfruit MRL and WHP app).  A spreadsheet is also available from their website:
