    Revised GTP Aflatoxin B1 Monitoring Protocol

    List of country of origin revised

    After a careful consideration and evaluation of the risk level regarding Aflatoxin B1, the list of countries of origin with 100% monitoring of the incoming maize has changed.

    Monitoring data collected by several certified companies provided evidence to move Spain from low risk level to medium risk level country.

    The new GTP Monitoring Protocol V6.7 – 7.07.2017 with the updated table level risk for country is now available on the EFISC-GTP website and it enters into force as of Friday, 7 July 2017.

    In order to ensure the safety of the products, EFISC-GTP intends to continue its data collection on aflatoxin results so to help compiling the database and assessing the risks. Should you have any available information from the new or old harvest, please send it to

    As a reminder, EFISC-GTP recognises the Monitoring Aflatoxin B1 protocols of all GTP equivalent and recognised schemes having in place an aflatoxin protocol. This acceptance of protocols prevents the double analysis of goods when they have already been analyzed once according to any of the mutual recognised protocols.
