Criteris per a l'avaluació de la gestió dels risc de contaminació per micotoxines a la indústria alimentària
Food contamination by mycotoxins is an emerging risk, given the current climatic conditions. When carrying out the inspection activity, we come across food companies that manage the risk of contamination by mycotoxins according to their own criteria, without a clear or objective basis, and that does not conform to the sampling method established by Regulation 401/2006 with the argument that it is intended for official control. On the one hand, the fact that certain companies are involved in alerts to exceed the mycotoxin limits established by Regulation 1881/2006 and, on the other, the positive results obtained in official samples, show that the self-control plans implemented by these companies are not effective enough to control this danger. This Community of Practice (CoP) aims to unify a series of criteria that allow evaluating the mycotoxin risk management programs of food companies affected by these contaminants. The scope of this work includes the sectors of nuts, spices, cereals, wine, coffee and fruit and derivatives. In a complex and changing regulatory framework, it is necessary to have a tool that facilitates its interpretation and application during the official control of mycotoxins. The different sections provided in the questionnaire can help companies and inspectors to become aware of the factors that promote mycotoxin contamination and growth at all stages of the food process, and to apply the necessary preventive and control measures.
