EUPTs on Pesticide Residues in Food and Feed - Tentative List of OBLIGED Labs for 2017
In the document linked below you can find out in which of the 4 EUPTs on pesticide residues (FV, CF, AO, SRM), to be conducted in 2017, your lab is OBLIGED to participate (based on the data provided to the EURLs by the NRLs):
- Link to List of OBLIGED LABs for all EUPTs in 2017 (on CIRCA BC) (last updated 01.03.2017). The Excel-file also contains the E-mail addresses of the contact persons of each lab.
Please consider: CIRCA BC is our new document repository. You have to create a new account to be able to login: Link to create a CIRCA BC-Account. At the ECAS-Site choose "External" to create an account. After the registration procedure, please apply for access to the interest group "EU-RL for pesticides".
The legal obligation to participate in the different EUPTs arises from:
Art. 28 of Reg. 396/2005/EC (for all OfLs analyzing for pesticide residues within the framework of official controls in food or feed)
Art. 33 of Reg. 882/2004/EC (for all NRLs)
Please note that pesticide residue testing within the frame of IMPORT CONTROLS of samples collected by the customs at the Designated Points of Entry (according to Reg. 669/2009/EC) and CONTROLS of ORGANIC SAMPLE Products (according to Reg. 889/2008/EC) are also considered as official controls in the sense of Reg. 882/2004/EC.
On request by the COM, laboratories (incl. subcontracted private laboratories) involved in such controls were included into the OfL-Network of each NRL and (potentially) have to participate in the EUPTs.
All labs are requested to carefully check the file for correctness and completeness and report any errors to their responsible NRL and to email@example.com.
DG-SANTE expects from labs not intenting to participate in a certain EUPT in which they are obliged to participate, to provide explanations.
Details on how to provide these explanations will be given in the website of each EUPT.
