In particular, the residue levels found in grapefruit, pomegranates and lemons from Turkey would exceed the permitted level, among other products.

For this reason, all fresh fruits from Turkey must be endowed with a certificate of analysis ratified by the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Livestock, specifying that the imported products do not exceed the permitted residue levels.

This reflects the importance given by the United Arab Emirates authorities to the importation of products without too much residue, that this measure will not only apply to fruits imported from Turkey but also to those imported from Egypt, Jordan, Yemen, Oman and Libya.
