Rules on monitoring by EU states of background levels of dioxins and dioxin-like polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in food were published in the EU’s official journal on 16 November. Member states must sample high-risk foods, such as fish, from now until 31 December 2008. Thresholds will be reviewed again at that point. Legal limits on dioxins and dioxin-like PCBs in food were passed earlier this year (EED 03/02/06). See Commission regulation 2006/794/EC and dioxin food safety page.
