Guidance on sampling, analysis and data reporting for the monitoring of mineral oil hydrocarbons in food and food contact materials

In the frame of Commission Recommendation (EU) 2017/84

________

Four years after the first edition, drafting this second edition of the guidance document was triggered both by DG SANTE’s request to update the instructions for reporting and by the need to reflect the experience acquired in the field of the mineral oil analyses . As in the first edition, this guidance document provides specific recommendations for sampling and analysis of mineral oil saturated hydrocarbons (MOSH) and mineral oil aromatic hydrocarbons (MOAH) in food and food contact materials (FCM) in the frame of Recommendation (EU) 2017/84 for the monitoring of mineral oils. In addition, it addresses the requirements resulting from the Joint Statement of the Member States (dated April 21, 2022) and the clarifications to the statement (dated October 19, 2022) regarding the presence of MOAH in food, including food for infants and young children.

Minimum performance requirements are specified for the analytical methods fit for MOSH and MOAH monitoring and control. The guidance should be used by all stakeholders concerned, i.e. food inspectors, official control laboratories, laboratories in industry and laboratories of non‐ governmental organisations.

This guide aims to support the reporting of reliable data when quantifying both MOSH and MOAH fractions by laboratories that are familiar with the analytical approaches and that have demonstrated satisfactory analytical performance in relevant proficiency testing (PT) schemes. In addition, this guide provides references to current analytical approaches described in the scientific literature to laboratories that are not familiar with MOSH/MOAH analysis, even though it does not provide any standard operating procedures.
