Maize Aflatoxin Protocol Updated - changes to risk ratings for action


In conjunction with EFISC-GTP, GMP+ International, OVOCOM FCA and QS, AIC has amended the aflatoxin risk ratings for some origins of  maize:

  • Ukraine moved from Medium to Low
  • South West France (defined as Departments 31, 32, 33, 40, 47, 64, 65 and 82) increased from Low to Medium
  • All other Departments of France remain in Low Risk

The new risk ratings are applicable from 27th December 2021

In addition to the changes of risk ratings, the Maize Aflatoxin Sector Note has been updated to improve readability and aid clarity, and can be found here.
