Yesterday an AP2 Auditor called in to take samples of the last two honey batches we produced this last season. The day before the Auditor called me if it was suitable he would call in to take the samples and at the same time I offered AFB test results for all our batches produced this season. We test for AFB as China has the requirement for this. Last year I also emailed AFB test result to the AFBPMP, although never heard anything back. The Auditor wasn't interested in it because some possible "privacy issues or whatever". So he was instructed to take the samples. Has anybody else experienced this, as I feel here is an inefficiency. Why test twice the same sample for the same thing. Is there something I am missing; is the AFB test we are required to do for China entrance of honey product saying less about the presence of AFB in the sample or what???
