COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2019/533

of 28 March 2019

concerning a coordinated multiannual control programme of the Union for 2020, 2021 and 2022 to ensure compliance with maximum residue levels of pesticides and to assess the consumer exposure to pesticide residues in and on food of plant and animal origin

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Regulation (EC) No 396/2005 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 February 2005 on maximum residue levels of pesticides in or on food and feed of plant and animal origin and amending Council Directive 91/414/EEC (1), in particular Article 29(2) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

By Commission Regulation (EC) No 1213/2008 (2) a first coordinated multiannual Community control programme, covering the years 2009, 2010 and 2011, was established. That programme continued under consecutive Commission Regulations. The latest one was Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2018/555 (3).

(2)

Thirty to forty foodstuffs constitute the major components of the diet in the Union. Since pesticide uses show significant changes over a period of three years, pesticides should be monitored in those foodstuffs over a series of three-year cycles to allow consumer exposure and the application of Union legislation to be assessed.

(3)

The European Food Safety Authority (‘the Authority’), submitted a scientific report on a design assessment of the pesticide monitoring programme. It concluded that an MRL exceedance rate above 1 % could be estimated with a margin of error of 0,75 % by selecting 683 sample units for a minimum of 32 different food items (4). Collection of those samples should be apportioned among Member States according to population numbers, with a minimum of 12 samples per product and per year.

(4)

Analytical results from the previous official control programmes of the Union have been taken into account to ensure that the range of pesticides covered by the control programme is representative for the pesticides used.

(5)

Guidance concerning ‘Analytical quality control and validation procedures for pesticide residues analysis in food and feed’ is published on the Commission website (5).

(6)

Where the residue definition of a pesticide includes other active substances, metabolites and/or breakdown or reaction products, those compounds should be reported separately as far as they are measured individually (6).

(7)

Implementing measures, such as the Standard Sample Description (SSD) for submitting results of pesticide residues analysis, relating to the submission of information by Member States have been agreed by Member States, the Commission and the Authority.

(8)

For the sampling procedures, Commission Directive 2002/63/EC (7), which incorporates the sampling methods and procedures recommended by the Codex Alimentarius Commission, should apply.

(9)

It is necessary to assess whether maximum residue levels for food for infants and young children provided for in Article 10 of Commission Directive 2006/141/EC (8) and Article 7 of Commission Directive 2006/125/EC (9) are respected, taking into account only the residue definitions as they are set out in Regulation (EC) No 396/2005.

(10)

As regards single residue methods, Member States may be able to meet their obligations of analysis by having recourse to official laboratories already having the validated methods required.

(11)

Member States should submit by 31 August of each year the information concerning the previous calendar year.

(12)

In order to avoid any confusion due to an overlap between consecutive multiannual programmes, Implementing Regulation (EU) 2018/555 should be repealed in the interest of legal certainty. It should, however, continue to apply to samples tested in 2019.

(13)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Feed,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Member States shall, during the years 2020, 2021 and 2022, take and analyse samples for the pesticide/product combinations, as set out in Annex I.

The number of samples of each product, including foods for infants and young children and products originating from organic farming, shall be as set out in Annex II.

Article 2

1.   The lot to be sampled shall be chosen randomly.

The sampling procedure, including the number of units, shall comply with Directive 2002/63/EC.

2.   All samples, including those of foods intended for infants and young children and products originating from organic farming, shall be analysed for the pesticides set out in Annex I in accordance with the residue definitions set out in Regulation (EC) No 396/2005.

3.   For foods intended for infants and young children, samples shall be evaluated on the products as proposed ready for consumption or as reconstituted according to the instructions of the manufacturers, taking into account the MRLs set out in Directives 2006/125/EC and 2006/141/EC. Where such foods can be consumed both as sold and as reconstituted, the results shall be reported on the non-reconstituted product as sold.

Article 3

Member States shall submit the results of the analysis of samples tested in 2020, 2021 and 2022 by 31 August 2021, 2022 and 2023 respectively. Those results shall be submitted in the electronic reporting format as set out by EFSA.

Where the residue definition of a pesticide includes more than one compound (active substance and/or metabolite or breakdown or reaction product), Member States shall report the analysis results in accordance with the full residue definition. In addition, the results of all analytes that are part of the residue definition shall be submitted separately, as far as they are measured individually.

Article 4

Implementing Regulation (EU) 2018/555 is repealed.

However, as regards samples tested in 2019, it shall continue to apply until 1 September 2020.

Article 5

This Regulation shall enter into force on 1 January 2020.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

Done at Brussels, 28 March 2019.

(1)  For the raw commodities to be analysed, the parts of the products to which MRLs apply shall be analysed for the main product of the group or subgroup as listed in Part A of Annex I to Regulation (EC) No 396/2005 unless stated otherwise.

(2)  Unprocessed products shall be analysed. In case of products sampled in frozen state, a processing factor shall be reported, if applicable.

(3)  If no sufficient samples of rye, wheat, oat or barley grains are available, also rye, wheat, oat or barley whole grain flour can be analysed and a processing factor shall be reported.

(4)  If no sufficient samples of oat grains are available, the part of the required sample number for oat grains that could not be taken, can be added to the sample number for barley grains, resulting in a reduced sample number for oat grains and a proportionately increased sample number for barley grains.

(5)  Where appropriate, also polished rice grain can be analysed. It shall be reported to EFSA whether polished or husked rice was analysed. If polished rice was analysed, a processing factor shall be reported.

(6)  If no sufficient samples of barley grains are available, the part of the required sample number for barley grains that could not be taken, can be added to the sample number for oat grains, resulting in a reduced sample number for barley grains and a proportionately increased sample number for oat grains.

(7)  Meat may also be sampled according to Table 3 of the Annex to Directive 2002/63/EC.

(8)  Fresh (unprocessed) milk shall be analysed, including frozen, pasteurised, heated, sterilised or filtrated milk.

(9)  Whole eggs without the shell shall be analysed.


ANNEX II

Number of samples referred to in Article 1

(1)

The number of samples to be taken for each commodity and analysed for the pesticides listed in Annex I by each Member State is set out in the table in point (5).

(2)

In addition to the samples required in accordance with the table in point (5), in 2020 each Member State shall take and analyse five samples of infant formulae and five samples of follow-on formulae.

In addition to the samples required in accordance with that table, in 2021 each Member State shall take and analyse ten samples of processed cereal-based baby food.

In addition to the samples required in accordance with that table, in 2022 each Member State shall take and analyse ten samples of foods for infants and young children other than infant formulae, follow-on formulae and processed cereal-based baby food.

(3)

In accordance with the table in point (5), samples from commodities originating from organic farming shall, where available, be taken in proportion to the market share of those commodities in each Member State, with a minimum of 1.

(4)

Member States using multi-residue methods may use qualitative screening methods on up to 15 % of the samples to be taken and analysed in accordance with the table in point (5). Where a Member State uses qualitative screening methods, it shall analyse the remaining number of samples by quantitative multi-residue methods.

Where the results of qualitative screening are positive, Member States shall use a usual target method to quantify the findings.

(5)
