Chemical residues (E40)

Criteria question

[no modifications]

Does the standard include criteria on testing the final product regarding residues of chemicals?

Guidance

[no modifications]

Refers to testing of residues e.g. heavy metals.

Degree of Intensity (DoI)

[no modifications]

1. Limit values for less or equal than 10 residues are defined

2. Limit values for more than 10 residues are defined


This criterion is currently a minimum criterion.

We also think, that those mentioned 10 residues should be clearly defined. Also the 10 to be defined residues should not be already covered by legal requirements, but rather should be additional residues.

Currently it is only written "Refers to testing of residues e.g. heavy metals.

We think that is really unclear. What does this mean? We recommend that you shoul mention the "10 residues" clearly.

Thanks for your comment. We will discuss a (non-comprehensive) list of relevant residues and their limit values to be included in the guidance.

Lacks definitions. Which substances are to be tested
