Improving the handling of residue cases in organic production – the FIBL report (IT)


The aim of the «Quick Scan» project is to provide an inventory of current procedures concerning residue cases in organic products. To this end, experts were interviewed about the current situation in their respective countries. 19 control bodies (CBs), 29 control authorities (CAs) and 5 food companies returned a completed questionnaire. The following 25 EU Member States are covered in the Quick Scan: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Ireland, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, The Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and UK.

The main finding of this survey is that residue findings in organic products are handled very differently across EU MS. The heterogeneity is significant and concerns all aspects, from the legal basis to sampling and lab selection, case investigation, evaluation and exchange of information.
