Prevent Your Exports from Being Rejected

Locate the Latest Contaminant Limit Standards with Ease 

Food processors and ingredient manufacturers need to stay ahead of quickly growing global contaminant regulations. Governments classify and regulate contaminants differently for heavy metals, aflatoxins, natural toxicants, dioxins, PCBs, and other regulated substances.  New standards are being developed, while other standards are changing quickly.  Unless these regulatory changes are monitored, shipments can quickly be out of compliance with new regulations, resulting in rejected loads and financial loss. BCGlobal’s database of global contaminant limits provides you with the information you need to ensure your exports comply with foreign standards.
