12 food and food-related standards began to be implemented in September
Issuing time:2017-09-01 10:43
Core Tip: Since September 2017, 12 food and food related standards have been implemented, including 6 national standards and 6 local standards.
Among the six national standards, three have been implemented since September 17. They are: "GB 2761-2017 National Food Safety Standards Limits of Mycotoxins in Foods", "GB 2762-2017 National Food Safety Standards Limits of Contaminants in Foods", "GB 5009.138-2017 National Food Safety Standards Determination of Nickel in Foods".
The three newly implemented standards replace “GB 2761-2011 National Food Safety Standard Mycotoxin Limit”, “GB 2762-2012 National Food Safety Standard Contaminant Limit in Food”, “GB / T 5009.138-2003 Nickel in Food Determination ".
It is worth noting that the implementation of the two general standards for pollutants GB 2761-2017 and GB 2762-2017 is particularly important this month. These two standards mainly add the limit of ochratoxin A in wine and coffee, add the limit of lead in spirulina and its products, and delete the limit of rare earth in plant foods. In addition, some problems encountered after the implementation of the National Food Safety Standard Mycotoxin Limit (GB 2761-2011) and the National Food Safety Standard Contaminant Limits in Food (GB 2762-2012) were implemented, taking into account The relevant standards are coordinated, and the contents of the two standards are further revised and improved.
It is understood that GB2761 stipulates the limits for mycotoxins in food in China, and GB2762 stipulates the limits for chemical pollutants except pesticide residues, veterinary drug residues, biological toxins and radioactive substances. China has separately formulated relevant national food safety standards for pesticide residue limits, veterinary drug residue limits and radioactive substance limits in food.
Jinxi Biological reminds here that the following principles should be followed in the implementation of GB 2761 and GB 2762:
First, food production enterprises should organize production in strict accordance with laws, regulations and standards, and meet the requirements of food pollutant (mycotoxin) limit standards.
Second, for other food contaminants (mycotoxin) not covered by the standard, or where no limit management value or control level has been established, food producers should take control measures to minimize the content of contaminants (mycotoxin) in the food. Level.
The third is to focus on the control of food raw material contaminants (mycotoxins), and to reduce and control contaminants (mycotoxins) in food from the source of the food.
Fourth, encourage production enterprises to adopt stricter control requirements of GB2761 and GB2762, strictly control food safety during the production process, and reduce the content of contaminants (mycotoxins) in food.
Three other national standards and six local standards will be implemented on September 1.
