Requirements for Residue Monitoring
  1. Refer to VPN/19 for the standard relating to the national residue-monitoring programme. In addition, the following must be adhered to:
    1. All withdrawal periods of Veterinary medicines must be adhered to.
    2. The GMI/GME, if not the same person than the team leader, must ensure that the following checks are done by the Team Leader on the farm before the game harvesting can proceed:
      • Check the registration certificate of the farm to establish if the farm has been registered with a negligible or low chemical residue risk.
      • If the farm is registered as negligible risk the Team Leader must confirm with the owner of the farm that he has not recently notified the PVA of any changes in the chemical risk profile on the farm as previously evaluated.
      • In case of negligible risk with no change in risk profile the hunting can proceed.
      • Where farms had been approved with low chemical residue risk the Team Leader will have to ensure, by viewing the Drug Stock and Treatment Registers that no game on the farm had been treated and is still within the withdrawal period of the drug.
