Abstract

According to Regulation (EC) No 396/2005 on maximum residue levels of pesticides in or on food and feed of plant and animal origin Member States have to monitor pesticide residue levels in food commodities and submit the monitoring results to EFSA and the European Commission. Since 2009 the Standard Sample Description (SSD) is the data model used for the reporting of data on analytical measurements of chemical substances occurring in food, feed and water. This document should provide Member States with specific guidance on how to use the SSD for the reporting of the national results of the pesticide residue monitoring in the framework of Article 32 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005. In particular, this document describes the codes to be used for the SSD data elements which pertain to the data collection on pesticide residues monitoring of the calendar year 2014.
