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 

We propose a conference call prior to the NACRW workshop in order to attract scientific leadership who are interested in developing this issue during the NACRW workshop.

Proposed VDR Working Group Agenda for NACRW, July 21, 2019, 2:45 - 4:15pm : 

  • Introduce the concept and ideas of such a Working Group discussing analytical criteria for multi-analyte methods
  • Highlights on International guidelines & updates (MRM - Appendix to CAC/GL 71-2009)
  • Explain the concept evolving in different regions of the world (US, EU...) 
  • Discuss several critical issues to review together during and after this WG meeting
  • Discuss future activities, such as developing analytical criteria that would need to be covered, when extending a multi-analyte method for additional matrices, / species, ranges of concentrations or new substances
  • Draft a roadmap for the next steps up to NACRW 2020, if topic and WG are of interest to a sufficient number of people.
