2. Monitoring of Aflatoxine B1 in maïs

A reassessment of the risk classification of countries (see FCA-document ‘BT-16: Temporary Monitoring’), based on Aflatoxine results received, has once again lead to a number of changes.


Following such assessment, the risk classification of Russia changes from ‘Medium’ to ‘High’.


For Canada, the Czech Republic and Ukraine, the risk classification changes from ’Medium’ to ‘Low’.


The periodic assessment is based on the received analysis results, which FCA certified companies are required to submit, and on analysis results from other feed certification schemes, and also on RASFF-notifications relating to Aflatoxine B1 in maize.


If your company, in the context of this Protocol, has analysis results for Aflatoxine B1 in maize, be sure to send them to info@ovocom.be! This also applies if you yourself did not have the analysis performed, but you’ve received the analysis results from your supplier.


Furthermore, the BT-16 Protocol has been complemented at two places. These changes shall become applicable in the event that the analysis certificate with respect to the batch is no longer valid (after 3 months) and a re-analysis should be performed. For monitoring the batch/lot in a storage space, it is sometimes not possible to monitor representative the entire batch. Therefore a monitoring plan should be drafted. Moreover, the related analysis certificate must always accompany the batch/lot.
