BACKGROUND: Cypermethrins, possess eight isomers, used both as pesticide and as veterinary drug, were set different MRLs for livestock by CCPR and CCRVDF of Codex Alimentarius. Korea Food Code designates MRLs for livestock only as pesticide. METHODS AND RESULTS: This study presented necessaries of harmonization of MRL setting for compounds used both as pesticides and as veterinary drugs with regulatory aspects, showing an example of cypermethrin residue in livestock. CONCLUSION(S): For harmonization, following factors must be considered and recommended; designation of marker residue; alpha-cypermethrin, zeta- cypermethrin, and cypermethrin, clarification of the definition of target tissues; meat, fat, muscle, by-product, eggs, milk, and etc., method of analysis; clarification of target analytes of isomers, quantitation and calculation method as a principle of residue analysis.

축산물 중 cypermethrin 잔류를 예로 농약 및 농물용의 약품으로 사용되는 약제와 이성질체를 포함한 약제에 대한 잔류허용기준 설정의 문제점과 개선사항을 실험과 문헌을 통해 검토하였다. 과학적이고 합리적인 잔류허용기준설정을 위해서는 분석 대상 시료 및 적용부위의 명확성과 합의된 정의의 도출 그리고, 분석 대상화합물의 명확한 지정이 있어야 한다. 그리고 이를 바탕으로 규제 검사, 연구목적의 모니터링, 관련 분석법 개발 등이 보다 깊은 연관성을 가질수 있도록 관련 전문가들의 관심과 합의점 도출은 매우 중요하다.
