II. Primary sample and bulk sample preparation 7. In the case of a consignment consisting of several units, the batch size or boundaries are hard to determine, every car, truck or ship's cargo is treated as a separate batch. 8. Shipment is one lot or batch compilation of multiple. Lot grading or manufacturing process can be mixed. 9. If the consignment consists of several lots, and it is possible to determine their origins (for example, different producers), a sample shall be taken from each lot separately. 10. the unit comprises: 10.1. each whole vegetable or fruit or natural bunch. Fresh fruit or vegetables do not rotate; 10.2. healthy, not broken eggs; 10.3. the whole of the animal body part or organ, or part of it – the big animals, their parts or organs. To prepare the units for body parts or organs can be cut; 10.4. any whole or part of the carcase, or whole organs – small animals, their parts or organs; 10.5. the smallest individual packaging, if sampling of packaged products. If the smallest packages are very small, the unit consists of several packages. If the smaller package is very large, the Unit prepared using a sampling device; 10.6. of the bulk material and the large packaging considered part of the product (for example, from the barrel, from a large cheese packaging). 11. Each primary sample is taken from a randomly chosen spot in the lot. The primary sample is taken in quantities to ensure the required number of laboratory samples from the bulk sample. 12. If from plant products, eggs and egg products, or in the case of milk and milk products in view of the party more than one primary sample, each primary sample consists of approximately equal parts of the total sample. 13. the minimum number of primary samples to be taken from the lot in accordance with the provisions of annex 1. Randomly selected primary samples of meat, poultry, party also takes in accordance with the provisions of annex 2. If you suspect that a lot of content too much pesticide residues, sample taken in accordance with the provisions of annex 2. 14. Description of primary samples and minimum size of laboratory samples shall: 14.1. meat and meat products, including poultry meat and poultry meat products-these terms in annex 3; 14.2. products of plant origin – this provision in annex 4; 14.3. eggs and egg products, milk and dairy products – this provision in annex 5. 15. in order to prepare the primary sample or laboratory sample, unit turns or terminates, unless the unit is not designed to split this provision in annex 3.
III. preparation of laboratory samples 16. If the total sample is larger than needed for the distribution of the laboratory sample to ensure a representative part. 17. the representative of the part to use the sampling device, splitting into four parts or other appropriate size reduction technique. 18. in view of the laboratory sample or more laboratory samples, as needed while having a parallel laboratory sample. 19. in view of the laboratory sample, prepare a sampling protocol. Protocol: 19.1. identifies the lot (indicates its origin, owner or supplier of the product name, the quantity of product), record the date and place of sampling, as well as other information that may be relevant; 19.2. Specifies the sampling method; 19.3. list all deviations from the sampling methods. 20. The sampling protocol shall be drawn up in triplicate. One copy: 20.1. is added for each laboratory sample (also parallel to the model); 20.2. remain at the workers; 20.3. the batch is issued to owner or his representative. 21. Laboratory sample shall be placed in a clean, inert container (container) that protects from pollution, damage and leakage. The package is sealed and labelled and accompanied by the sampling protocol. 22. laboratory sample and the laboratory test sample take the parallel to the laboratory as quickly as possible, subject to the conditions of storage of the product. If there is a chance that the sample could spoil before it is delivered to the laboratory, meat, poultry meat, well before frozen samples.
IV. Analytical sample preparation laboratory sample of 23 allocated to each laboratory identification number. The date of receipt of the samples, sample size, and the identification number of the entry of the laboratory sampling protocol. 24. the analytical samples from the laboratory sample as early as possible. If the quantity of pesticide residues is calculated for the product, including the parts that are not analysed, including canned stone fruits tiles, indicates parts separated. 25. the analytical sample and mix well to take the analytical part of the representative. Analytical part size is determined according to the method of analysis and the mixing efficiency. 26. Crushing and blending techniques does not affect existing analytical model in pesticide residue. To minimize the impact on pesticide residue quantity change, analytical processing of samples under appropriate conditions. 27. If the product can affect pesticide residue and alternative procedures are not available, the analytical part consists of whole units or segments taken from whole units. 28. If the analytical part consists of several whole units or segments and cannot be considered representative respect to the analytical sample analysed enough parallel part to obtain reliable results. 29. If the analytical part is stored before analysis, method and time of storage must not affect the determination of pesticide residues.
V. evaluation of the results of the analyses
30. The analytical results obtained from one or more laboratory samples. Results confirmed by the supporting quality control data. 31. If residues exceeding the maximum residue level established their identity and confirm the concentration, making re-analysis of one or more of the test parts. Test parts are taken from the original laboratory sample or laboratory samples of the original. 32. Pesticides shall be limited to the total sample, representative of the lot. 33. If the total of the sample results exceeds the quantity of pesticide residues laid down in Regulation No 396/2005, annex II and annex III service shall decide on the party's non-compliance with the rules laid down, taking into account: 33.1. results obtained from one or, if necessary, a number of laboratory samples; 33.2. the reliability and accuracy of analysis, which shows the supporting quality control data. 34. The batch complies with the rules laid down, if the analytical result shall not exceed the amount of pesticide residues laid down in Regulation No 396/2005 in annex II and annex III. 35. where a party does not comply with the rules laid down, parallel laboratory samples shall be stored in the laboratory for two weeks after the test report. 36. If the owner of the party or its representative wants to use the European Parliament and of the Council of 29 April 2004, Regulation (EC) No 882/2004 on official controls performed to ensure the verification of compliance with feed and food law, animal health and animal welfare rules (hereinafter Regulation No 882/2004), article 11, paragraph 5 of the proposed right to re-examine After the party, the lab owner or his representative, the request shall send a parallel investigation of the laboratory sample to the owner of the party or its representative designated laboratory which complies with Regulation (EC) No 882/2004 article 12 paragraph 2. 37. parallel laboratory investigation costs shall be borne by the owner of the party or its representative.

If the number of primary samples to be taken is greater than approximately 10% of all the units in the batch, the number of primary samples to be taken can be less, and is calculated using the following formula: n = n0 that (1 + (n0-1))/N n – the minimum number of primary samples to be taken; No – the number of primary samples to be taken in accordance with this annex; N – number of units in the lot from which a primary sample can be obtained. 3. If a single primary sample is taken, the probability of detecting non-compliance is similar to the irregular occurrence of pesticide residues. 4. Accurate or other probabilities or different incidence of non-compliance to the number of samples to be calculated using the following formula: p = 1-(1-i) n, where p-the probability (expressed as fractions, rather than as a percentage); I – non-compliant residues in the lot (expressed as parts and not as a percentage); n-the number of samples.
