Food Contaminant and Residue Information System

FCRIS is a resource on chemical food contaminants with a focus on Codex food standards and guidelines and on reducing the incidence of food trade rejections as a result of chemical contaminants and violative levels of residues.

The contamination of food as a result of use of pesticides, veterinary drugs and other compounds, including prohibited substances, can result in the undesirable presence of residues in food and can have an adverse impact on public health and international trade. FCRIS allows users to obtain information on food contaminants and residues, including chemical and toxicological data on pesticides and veterinary drugs, as well as methods of analysis fit for national residue surveillance programmes. It is maintained by the Joint FAO/IAEA Division of Nuclear Techniques in Food and Agriculture.
