Industry data on perchlorate residues

3 May 2017

In September 2016 the European Commission sent a request to the European Food Safety Authority for a human exposure assessment on perchlorate. The EFSA Opinion will provide an advice on human exposure to perchlorate taking into account the monitoring data received from the EU Member States covering the period: September 2013-End 2016. The EFSA Opinion will be published in June 2017.

To support the dossier, the European Commission has advised the industry to collect analytical results. These additional results will help the Commission to make a decision on the permanent maximum levels for perchlorate in fruit and vegetables after receiving the EFSA Opinion.
