On September 14, the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare of Japan issued Notice No. 1 0914, which revised the "Specifications and Standards of Food, Additives, etc.". The main modifications are as follows:

1. The standard values for residues of cyclopyr, diquat, tebuconazole, Broflanilide, betamethasone, and benzpyrimoxan in food have been revised or newly established.

2. The limit standard of betamethasone residues in some foods is "not detectable", so the dexamethasone test method is deleted, and the betamethasone and dexamethasone test methods are newly established, with betamethasone and dexamethasone as the object of analysis.

3. Applicable date This announcement is effective from the date of issuance, but the limits of pesticide and veterinary drug residues in some foods can still be applied to previous regulations within 1 year from the date of this announcement.
