Regulations for mycotoxins

Mycotoxin problems differ by geographic region and by crop. The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) updated information on worldwide mycotoxin regulations in 2003 (FAO, 2004). This survey found that at least 98 countries had regulations for food and/or animal feed in 2002, an increase of ~ 30% compared to 1995. The regulatory requirements differ substantially by country, although several regulations have been (or are being) harmonized in countries belonging to various economic communities. In the EU Mediterranean countries, some countries apply different limits for aflatoxin contamination (Table 2) and more specific and harmonized regulations are needed.
