Monitoring of Aflatoxine B1 in maize: reclassification of Italy and Serbia


One month has passed since the first assessment of the classification of countries into risk categories (high / medium /low), a classification put in place in the protocol for additional monitoring of Aflatoxin B1 in maize (FCA document ‘BT-16: Temporary monitoring’).

 

As indicated in the Protocol, a revision of the classification of countries into risk categories is evaluated periodically and adapted where necessary.

 

Following the recent evaluation based on analysis results received for “aflatoxin B1/maize” as part of this protocol, the classification of Serbia and Italy has been adapted. These two countries have gone from ‘Medium’ risk to ‘high’ risk.

 

Because of this ‘high’ risk classification, other dimensions relating to the size of the batch shall apply (see point 4.2 of the protocol). One must ensure that this is observed by all suppliers.

 

This periodic evaluation is based on the results which FCA companies are required to sent to OVOCOM. If, in the context of this protocol, you still have analysis results for Aflatoxin B1 in maize, please send them without delay to info@ovocom.be !

 

This also applies when you haven’t performed the analysis yourself but you have received the results from your supplier.

 

The latest changes in this document are highlighted in grey. This FCA document is also consultable in a version without visible changes.
