The Council decided not to oppose the adoption of a Commission regulation amending regulation 152/2009 as regards the determination of the levels of dioxins and polychlorinated biphenyls (7395/14).

Regulation 152/20091 includes methods for the determination of the levels of dioxins and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in feed.

The amendments set out additional requirements concerning screening methods which identify the samples with significant levels of some of those chemical compounds (polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDFs) and dioxin-like PCBs): where the results achieved with the screening method exceed the cut-off value, the original sample should be analysed by means of a confirmatory method capable of identifying and quantifying the substances contained in the sample.

This Commission regulation is subject to the regulatory procedure with scrutiny. This means that now that the Council has given its consent, the Commission may adopt the regulation, unless the European Parliament objects.
