JFSSG Letter, 14 January 2000

Contaminants in Food (Amendment) Regulations 1999

The JFSSG has circulated the following draft document:
Contaminants in Food (Amendment) Regulations 1999. - The Aflatoxins Regulations: Guidance for Interested Parties

The letter is an informal consultation to seek views on the document, which is intended to provide information and guidance on various issues relating to UK Regulations on aflatoxins. On 30 June 1999, the new Regulations implemented EC legislation on aflatoxins in certain foods.

The document is intended to provide guidance to food authorities, industry and any other interested parties on the interpretation of the new legislation. It is not a statutory code of practice nor is it a substitute for the Regulations and should be read in conjunction with them.
