NOTES

Part I Codex General Methods for Contaminants

Cadmium: The WG considered that there was already a Type II Codex general method for Cadmium and so classsified the two new methods (AOAC 982.23 and NMKL 139) as Type III.

Copper: This method (AOAC 990.05) had already been classified as Type II for fats and oils. It was recommended that the Codex Committee on Methods of Analysis and Sampling agreed to change the colorimetric method (AOAC 960.40), which had been classified as Type II for fats and oils to Type III, in order to avoid having more than one Type II method for fats and oils. The Committee noted that ISO 8294:1994 is identical to the IUPAC method. It was also proposed that the appropriate IUPAC numbering be used for references to IUPAC methods.

Iron: The WG recommended that the IUPAC method and AOAC 990.05 be classified as Type II for fats and oils and the Atomic absorption method (NMKL No. 139), be classified as Type II.

Lead: The IUPAC method had already been classified as Type II for fats and oils. The WG noted that AOAC 994.02 and ISO 12193:1994 were equivalent methods. It was also observed that there was already in place a colorimetric dithizone method (AOAC 934.07) for lead in fats and oils. The WG therefore proposed that the Committee on Fats and Oils should consider deleting the method because the method is not sensitive enough to detect lead at the specification level. If however, the Commodity Committee would rather retain the method, it should be classified as Type III.

Nickel: The IUPAC method and AOAC 990.05 were recommended as Type II for fats and oils.

Tin: The method (AOAC 985.16) had previously been classified as Type III for a canned food, therefore the WG retained this classification.

Zinc: The method (NML No. 139) was classified as Type III.

Part II Methods of Analysis for Commodity Standards

The following comments were made:

66-128, 689-861 The methods for Sugars and Fats and Oils respectively, were not considered because the respective Commodity Committees were in the process of considering comments to circular letters which were circulated. The Working Group therefore recommended that consideration of these methods be suspended, pending the results of the actions taken by the respective Commodity Committees. The Working Group urged the Codex Committee on Methods of Analysis and Sampling to request its members to provide comments on CL 1995/22-FO directly to the Codex Committee on Fats and Oils.

138 The Secretariat was requested to contact the secretariat of AIIBP to obtain the necessary information, regarding the applicability of the method.

249, 251-254 It was noted that these methods have not been collaboratively studied for these commodities which contain salt substitutes and that there were no methods applicable to these matrices that meet the criteria of the Codex Committee on Methods of Analysis and Sampling. In view of this, the WG recommended the withdrawal of the temporary endorsement earlier granted to the reference methods and their deletion from being considered for endorsement.

353, 354, 475 & 489 The temporary endorsements were retained. The Secretariat was requested to bring the status and previous concerns of the Codex Committee on Methods of Analysis and Sampling to the attention of the Codex Committee on Natural Mineral Water.

435 & 503: The WG recommended that the Secretariat of the Codex Committee on Cereals, Pulses and Legumes be contacted to consider the comments earlier made and request their recommendations or concurrence with the proposals of the WG. If action was not taken the WG would recommend the withdrawal of the temporary endorsement.

509: Same recommendation as for 435 & 503, except that the Secretariat should contact the Codex Committee on Processed Fruits and Vegetables.

580 & 581 The WG temporarily endorsed these methods as Type IV and requested the Secretariat to contact the American Oil Chemists Society for method validation information which if available and found to be satisfactory, would enable the WG to recommend full endorsement.

635 The WG observed that there was already a Type I method (AOAC 991.43) for the determination of dietary fibre. The request by the Delegation of the United Kingdom for the WG to consider the Englyst method was not supported because the WG observed that the method and indeed the already endorsed one, could not determine the specified level for carrageenan and there was no specification for the level of the of carry-over fiber.

638 & 639 The WG did not recommend endorsement of these methods because, the WG noted that the IDF methods could not detect down to the limits prescribed. It was noted that this information should be transmitted to the IDF/ISO/AOAC Tripartite Working Group on Methods of Analysis, which recommend methods for milk products to the Codex Alimentarius Commission through the Codex Committee on Milk and Milk Products.

640, 641, 646 & 647 The WG recommended Type III classification for all except 647 which it classified as Type II. It was also noted that CEN had specified the size of the column and the method was no longer a proprietary one.

642 Recommended for endorsement as Type II method since it can measure levels higher than 10 mg/kg which is adequate for the guideline level.

643, 644, 645 & 648 All were not recommended for endorsement because they are not sensitive enough for analyses at the guideline levels. It was also noted that 648 was a proprietary method and one of the solvents used in 644 is chloroform - an ozone-depleting substance.

649 Cottonseed, not being for direct human consumption as food, the WG did not find this reference appropriate for consideration and so recommended its deletion.
