As a result of the evaluation of the available analysis results of Aflatoxin B1 in maize GMP+ International adjusted the risk profile for Aflatoxin B1, together with other accepted scheme holders.

For Russia, this means that the risk is changed from ‘High’ to ‘Medium’. This means that maize originating from Russia can be analysed less frequently because the risk of the presence of Aflatoxin B1 is labelled medium. The changed protocol went into effect on April 17th 2017.

Whitepapers, legislation tool and more! Find it in the mycotoxin dossier on All About Feed.

To be able to reclassify countries, it is important that as many GMP+ participants as possible upload their analysis results to the GMP+ Monitoring database to share them with the GMP+ 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).

Analysing monitored results is a source of inspiration for GMP+ International to emphasize potential risks in its communication and to develop FSP products that make the individual companies and the feed industry as a whole more resilient, to better face the daily challenges involved with supplying safe feed for safe food.
