Greetings, 

 

We are chocolate and sugar confectionery (Ready to eat product) manufacturer based in Malaysia and our product is export to korea and US. Recently my customer in US request for pesticides compliance declaration. We do have COA/declaration of pesticide for ingredients, however we do not tested for pesticide in our finished products. 

 

My questions are, do I need to test for pesticide in order to come out with pesticide compliance declaration or I can just declare based all the ingredient comply to Malaysia & Codex regulated pesticides without testing for pesticides level in my product. 

 

F.Y.I my company is small industry which have limitation for resources to conduct tests. 

 

Thanks.

You may want to do some kind of an annual screening for pesticides in your products. Not every load but a sort of "verification" annually. It may not be explicitly required, but I can speak for all of us over here in the Post-FSMA US, any actual testing supplers can demonstrate is a HUGE help to us in making sure we're meeting the rules, and will make you a very valuable supplier.

Dear Mr Prabakaran

 

Hai, i try to help answer your question 

As my Experience, i never do to test pesticide in my product and when we do Audit ISO 22000, we just show "Report Analisis Pesticide Raw Material" and we request every year from supplier.

 

 

Thanks
