Aflatoxin B1 - Revision of the additional control plan
The additional control plan for aflatoxin B1 was revised with effect from April 29, 2020. Based on the available results for aflatoxin B1 in maize, the revised version contains a new risk assessment for Spain.
For this country of origin the risk of contamination of maize with aflatoxin B1 has been downgraded from medium to low. A further change concerns the requirement to recognize other protocols, as laid down in the additional control plan. With the recognition of the EFISC-GTP standard, the previously existing restriction to maize processing products was deleted. This change was made because, on the basis of mutual recognition with QS, EFISC-GTP certified companies may also supply maize to the QS scheme in addition to maize processing products.
