JFSSG Letter,10 September 1998

Mycotoxins - EC Permitted Levels

Their was a meeting of the EC Working Group on Agricultural Contaminants on 8 September. There was a short discussion on Ochratoxin A (OA). A toxicological opinion on OA is still awaited from the Scientific Committee on Food and it is hoped that this will be delivered after their meeting on 16/17 September. No draft proposals are available yet. The Commission has stressed the importance of adopting a justifiable and transparent approach based firmly on risk assessment. The Working Group will discuss the SCF opinion in detail at another meeting later this year.
