CONTAMINANTS - Council discussions: Methods of sampling, performance criteria and screening methods

The following is an extract from the Education, Youth, Culture and Sport Council meeting:

The Council decided not to oppose the adoption of a Commission regulation amending regulation (EC) 401/2006 as regards methods of sampling of large lots, spices and food supplements, performance criteria for T-2, HT-2 toxin and citrinin and screening methods of analysis (6177/14).

The Commission regulation is subject to the so called regulatory procedure with scrutiny. This means that now that the Council has given its consent, the Commission may adopt it, unless the European Parliament objects.
