The use of HACCP systems to guarantee the production of safe food products for consumers has become very popular over the past few decades.
The HACCP technique is a logical, straightforward control system based on the prevention of problems; in other words, the HACCP program uses common sense to manage food safety.1-2 To implement a functioning HACCP system, five successive steps are recommended: Observing the process/product from beginning to end; Identifying potential hazards and determining which part of the process they may arise in; Establishing controls and supervising them; Keeping written records of everything; and Ensuring that the system continues to work efficiently. The object of this article is to present adequate options for monitoring control points in a mycotoxin HACCP system.
Of course, a good HACCP system has to be capable of coping with all factors that put the production chain at risk, not just mycotoxins. Monitoring Methods: Fungal or Mycotoxin Analysis? References.

FERA DEFRA - The Food and Environment Research Agency (Fera) - National Reference Laboratory for Mycotoxins. Legal provisions governing mycotoxins in food and feed. One basic remit of consumer protection is to reduce toxic substances like mycotoxins in food and feed as far as possible.
In Germany a maximum level regulation for aflatoxins in food was already introduced in 1976 to reduce mycotoxin contamination. In 1999 it was taken over into the Ordinance laying down maximum levels for mycotoxins (MHmV) and in 2004 it was extended to include provisions on ochratoxin A, fumonisins, deoxynivalenol and zearalenone in various foods. The national measures are supplemented by a maximum level regulation for contaminants in foods which entered into force on 8 March 2001 throughout the EU. On 6 June 2005 its scope was extended to fusarium toxins - deoxynivalenol and zearalenone, in addition to the mycotoxins it already covered - aflatoxins, ochratoxin A and patulin. Up. BFR - National Reference Laboratory for Mycotoxins. Mould toxins (mycotoxins) are one possible cause of food intoxications when mouldy food has been ingested.
Mycotoxins are secondary metabolites of mould. Up to now more than 300 mycotoxins have been described in the literature which may be formed by more than 250 types of mould. Some mycotoxins are only formed by specific species, others by many species of different fungal strains. The known representatives of mycotoxins are: Featured Expert of the Month - Isabelle Oswald- INRA, France - Dr. Isabelle Oswald discusses mycotoxins and immunity.

FSA 01/08/14 Programme de recherche 2008-2015 - 4-year surveillance for mycotoxins – sampling and analysis. The sampling was the first part of an interdependent project which provided retail samples available to UK consumers comprising of a variety of foods to support the final year of a four year surveillance programme investigating the occurrence of mycotoxins in foods.
Each sample collected consisted of packs/loose quantities of the same product to give a total of 1.5kg/ litre for each sample. Documentation for each sample provided a clear audit trail that was verified by relevant details recorded on an Excel spreadsheet. Relevant sample information has been transferred to an EFSA formatted database. Premier Analytical Services analysed 400 samples for citrinin (100 samples), alternaria toxins (100 samples), fumonisins (100 samples), sterigmatocystin (100 samples) and ergot alkaloids (100 samples) depending on the likelihood of contamination.
The data collected from the survey was submitted to EFSA as part of their continuous call for data on mycotoxins.
