A document based on replies to IDF questionnaire 3002/SCRCC – Dioxin/PCB levels in milk. Since the health concerns peaks of the late 90’s, the dioxin and related compounds issue has evolved in most of the developed countries. Due to its rapid transfer to the food chain, the key to reduce human exposure to PCDDs/PCDFs is to reduce the releases into the environment. Through regulation and voluntary efforts, releases of dioxin to the environment, and particularly where milk is concerned, have been dramatically reduced.
