Phosphonic Acid and Residues

Although the organic agriculture doesn’t use chemical substances itself, the risk of contaminations is pressing on organic heavily.

OPTA combines the high-level knowledge of our members withour international network to solve challenges on the level of individual substances for the whole organic sector on a harmonized manner.

  • –Need for defining what actions has to be taken when a suspicion is  substantiated.
  • –New orientation whether levels could be defined related to substantiated suspicion.
  • –RESCUE group will discuss the arguments that were behind the decision of Belgium in 2015 to chose for the LOQ approach.
  • –OPTA will bring in the RESCUE group that besides a general approach for defining “substantiated” we need differentiation on substances like PA based on scientific knowledge.
