Protocol Monitoring Aflatoxin B1

06 April 2018

Aflatoxin B1 in maize(-products): Change in Risk Profile for Serbia. As a result of the evaluation of the available analysis results of Aflatoxin B1 in maize GMP+ International, together with other accepted scheme holders, has adjusted the risk profile for Aflatoxin B1.

Changed Risk Profiles:

Serbia  - reduced from medium to low

 

This means that maize originating from
Serbia maybe analyzed less frequently.

This new risk profile takes effect 9th of April 2018.

 

Note:
Maize originating from a country with High risk must be analyzed more frequently, because the risk of the presence of Aflatoxin B1 is to be considered high.
Consult for more details
GMP+ Aflatoxine Protocol.

 

We do it together!
To be able to reclassify countries, it is important for GMP+ participants to upload their analysis results to the GMP+ Monitoring database and to share it with our community.

When uploading this information, please make sure that the origin of the maize is entered correctly and that the levels of Aflatoxin detected are entered with the correct unit (mg/kg).

 

Why is this important?
Analyzing monitoring results is an important source for GMP+ International in determining potential risks. Also, it helps us developing FSP products that make you and the feed industry as a whole more resilient.
