Belgium commended on agchem residue controls

The pesticide residue control system in Belgium is organised in an efficient and effective manner. That is the main finding of the European Commission’s Health and Consumers Directorate General’s food and veterinary office (FVO). It carried out a study into the control systems for residues in food of plant origin last September. There are risk-based controls, documented and transparent procedures, trained and motivated staff, accredited laboratories possessing appropriate equipment and methods, a quick turnaround time for samples and effective enforcements procedures, the office says. The FVO has made three recommendations covering sampling and greater consideration of industry’s own control systems.
