Notes to Annex 2
1. Temporary MRL (See Annex 3).
2. Temporary acdeptance (see Annexes 3 and 4).
3. Daily intake of the parent drug should be kept below this level.
4. Insufficient information was available to establish an ADI. The Committee concluded
that residues resulting from the use of carbadox in pigs were acceptable provided that
the recommended MRLS are not exceeded.
5. Residues are based on the levels of, and expressed as, quinoxaline-2-carboxylic acid.
6. Insufficient information was available to establish an ADI. The Committee concluded
that residues resulting from the use of olaquindox in food-producing animals under
conditions of good practice in the use of veterinary drugs were temporarily acceptable
(see Annex 3).
7. MRLs were not established because insuficient information was available (see Annex 3).
