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.
