Form of the available data

„Partial Information System about contaminants - (PIS)“ report 2004

Availability of data

Print version on request, in Slovak

Availability of an English version

NO

Evaluate transparency (from 1 – perfect = guided info on-line on the web;

2 – you will find it on the web, but it is not easy to find

3 – you will get it on request for free

4 - you will get it but you have to pay

5 – failed no data available/accessible

I had to ask for the report, but no payment for electronical version was requested.

Following the proposed valuation on the left, I valuate as accessibility of the information by 3+. + For the readiness of competent person for discussion and personal meeting.    

 

 

 

 

Legislation:

 

List the national regulation of pesticide residue monitoring in food of plant origin

Food law No. 152/ 1995 Z. z. amended by later legislation

Is the EU-harmonisation completed?

Yes, but implementation not on 100%.

The monitoring report 2004 is sent to the EC already?

Yes

 

 

 

 

Structure of the monitoring:

 

List activities to improve or to extend the capacity of monitoring/food control authorities during the past years in view of EU-harmonisation

- extension the capacity (personal/technical/financial) to fulfil EU needs, e.g number of active substances measured in food have markedly increased 

Is there a central or federal system of monitoring?

Central

Are there different reports regarding the national monitoring (which includes surveillance and enforcement samples) and the EU-coordinated monitoring?

As far I know, there are not different reports but data are collected from different institutes, “compulsory” EU-monitoring will be fulfilled in 2005.

Evaluation of the data:

 

(please mention if the information is related to national/EU-monitoring, domestic/import food or specials e.g. baby food.. if possible)

Baby food has been specially analysed on pesticides residues just in autumn 2004, no results are available till now. But unofficially there was found no pesticides residues in baby-food in 2005.   

Pesticides found most often

Domestic production: Dithiokarbamates, Imazalil, Iprodione, Chlorpyriphos, Phosalone, Procymidone, Chlorpyriphos-methyl

Imported: Imazalil, Chlorpyriphos, Dithiokarbamates, Thiabendazole, Procymidone Azinfos-methyl, Dicofol, Chlorothalonil

Critical Commodities

radish, frozen spinach, lettuce, potato, - SK green & black tea – import, but packed in Sk

2005: radish, lettuce – SK + grape, pepper,  oranges - import 

 

Critical Commodity/pesticide combination

No DATA

Official evaluation about acute or chronic risks?

?

 

 

 

Additional information:

 

Sampling by national authorities

(analytical methods, regulation e.g. according EU sampling Directive 2002/63/EC…)

All laboratories in monitoring system are certified according to European standards and they follow official EU methodology

 

Specific monitoring programmes on certain commodities?

Comment SS: I expect that the EU-coordinated monitoring is a part of this monitoring. By the way,  it is the same structure (CAM and MBM) as in Germany.

DL - YES

Regarding data evaluation:

 

Are there available information on MRL-setting in your country (source, legislation)

 

 

Did the authority use national diet studies for the evaluation?

How did the authority respect vulnerable groups such as children and the unborn?

 

http://www.svssr.sk/sk/legislativa/kodex/2_11_03.pdf

Yes but hardly to find, no link at any page, you have to go for food code and searching there for pesticides, Head No.11:

http://www.svssr.sk/sk/legislativa/kodex/2_11.asp 

There are two kinds of food monitoring as written above and the second one (MBM) is based some-how on national diet.  

 

As I mentioned since 2005 started monitoring of baby food (according to EU baby food monitoring)

 

 

COMMENTS / NOTES:

 

 

 

 

Interesting will be also to compare the personal/staff capacities and finances given to the pesticides monitoring in different countries (per capita). We try to find out some numbers, but it will be difficult.
