Renaming of the EURL

4 years ago

Given the growing importance of chlorinated persistent contaminants other than PCBs and dioxins, of brominated persistent contaminants and of fluorinated persistent contaminants for the safety of feed and food, the scope of the EU reference laboratory (EURL) for dioxins and PCBs in feed and food was extended to all halogenated persistent organic pollutants (POPs) in feed and food. Therefore the EU reference laboratory for dioxins and PCBs in feed and food was renamed in EU reference laboratory for halogenated persistent organic pollutants (POPs) in feed and food to reflect this extension of scope (Commission Regulation (EU) 2018/192). The tasks of EURLs are defined by Regulation (EU) 2017/625 of the European Parliament and of the Council.
