Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


Public concern about food quality, especially regarding drug residues in meat, is an important issue in Europe. The purpose of this book is to bring together current activities within the Community concerning residues of veterinary drugs. Effective control of residues is only made possible by having adequate technical resources to carry out the requirements of relevant legislation. The analytical methodology used must have an acceptable quality assurance, supported by good quality control criteria, sufficient reference materials and technical data. Each of these needs is addressed in detail, and a summary is provided of relevant EEC legislation. The methods used in each member state for the examination of residues of a large number of drugs is described in detail. There is supporting information on residues and chemical/physical data of the most important veterinary drugs. One section of the book also gives guidelines for the methods to be used in routine analysis of residues.
