fup6 Poland 30/07/2015 withdrawal of original notification Based on the information provided by the company Petropat Sp. z o.o. it was decided to undertake the confirmatory tests of the questioned result of official control analysis. Referee sample was sent to the national reference laboratory - National Institute of Public Health - National Institute of Hygiene. The result of analysis of the referee sample for sum of 4PAH was 25,7 +/- 3,8 µg/kg. As the maximum permitted level calculated on product's ingredients is 23,80 µg/kg and taking into account the uncertainty level (3,8 µg/kg) the result of tests performed on the referee sample did not confirm non-compliance. Therefore we would like to ask for withdrawal of the original notification.
