Update on Mineral Oil Hydrocarbons (MOH)

Recently, the European Commission proposed amendments to European Contaminants Regulation 2023/915, aiming to establish maximum levels for MOAH. The intensively discussed maximum levels are expected to be based on the recommended limits of quantification of the Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Feed (SCoPAFF). The goal of setting limits for MOAH is to standardise the investigation and assessment of MOAH in food across the EU.

The team of Chemisches Institut Burkon is highly specialised in the analysis and legal assessment of MOSH/MOAH contaminants in food and raw products.
