Dioxins and PCB Testing

Dioxin, Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCB) and Persistent Organic Pollutant (POP) testing from SGS – verify that seafood, pork products and other proteins are free from contamination.

Among many countries, the EU has strict regulations governing the presence of dioxins, PCBs and POPs in food and food products. Products shipped that are contaminated with these substances will be in violation of laws at their destination market.

Our testing and analysis services ensure that you can demonstrate compliance with each market’s specified levels.

Testing in our global network of food testing laboratories can be conducted as:

  • High resolution-gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (HR-GC/MS)
  • Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry/mass spectrometry (GC-MS/MS)

Failure to verify the absence of dioxins, PCBs and POPs, will result in product being seized, destroyed and/or recalled. All of which have the potential to destroy your brand reputation.

Operating globally, we have the industry knowledge to ensure that you meet the requirements of your destination markets. Contact your local SGS office to find out how dioxin and PCB testing and analysis can support your business.
