Exchange information among regulatory experts and develop  criteria to be applied to new multi-class / multi-residue methods (100+/200+ substances) for screening and possibly for confirming veterinary drug residues (VDR) in food.  This topic is strategically complicated given the various points of view:

  • Regulatory vs Industry 
  • Veterinary Drugs vs Pesticide Residue and/or Contaminant Residue
