AOAC INTERNATIONAL is proposing the establishment of a working group to develop a voluntary consensus standard (or standards) for the determination (quantification) of 35 pyrrolizidine alkaloids (PAs) (comprising 21 PAs of regulatory importance and 14 others known to co-elute with one or more of the identified 21 PAs) in teas, herbal infusions, herbs, seed spices and botanical dietary supplement ingredients to meet new maximum levels (MLs) recently adopted through the European Commission Regulation (EU) 2020/20401. The Working Group will develop one or more Standard Method Performance Requirements®, or SMPRs® (as deemed necessary by WG experts), based on priorities established by the project’s Advisory Panel.
