There has been an alarming increase in cases of imported foodstuffs, from the Far East in particular, containing residues harmful to health. The Agriculture Council, meeting on March 18th, discussed the need to re-examine the criteria used in the EU to assess the effectiveness of residue checks applied by third countries. Comment: Increased checks on residues could increase costs to ACP suppliers as they have to tighten up their controls to check for substances which, in many cases, have no role in production in ACP countries.
