Abstract

The results of a survey of individual government officials charged with administering MRL policy are reported. Respondents from a variety of countries with divergent policy regimes for MRLs were interviewed. They were asked about their current practices related to MRLs and how progress might be made in achieving regulatory harmonization for MRLs. Their answers were informative regarding both regulatory divergence and how barriers to trade could be reduced.
