On a weekly basis Quality Assurance takes risk based MRL analyses in order to analyse residuals of crop protection products. A risk profile is composed per product-country combination. The risk profile is determined based on analysis of own database results, the monitoring database of VWA (food safety authorities) and the monitoring database of Food Compass (Frugi Venta).
As a result, products with a high risk profile are more often analyzed than products with a low risk profile. These MRL analyses are executed by an independent laboratory to test the products on food safety and quality. In addition more information on Food Compass can be found at www.foodcompass.nl.
