    DICOFOL

    Explanation

    The questions concerning tolerances for dicofol residues in tea
    referred to in Paragraph 108 of the Report of the Fifth Session of the
    Codex Committee on Pesticide Residues were considered. It was agreed
    that, because of the variation in the residue levels in tea from
    different sources, it was impossible to administer more than one
    tolerance for each pesticide residue.

    Recommendation

    The Meeting agreed to delete the recommended tolerances of 1 ppm for
    dicofol residues in tea (blended) and to retain the recommendation of
    5 ppm for tea without reference to "tea from particular estate for
    blending only". It was accepted that this provided for produce from
    individual estates, as well as for blended tea treated in accordance
    with good agricultural practice.
