Non Conforming Products



Participants must establish a documented procedure for dealing with oilseeds that do not comply with specifications. This procedure must include: i) Identification of batches / lots affected. ii) Documentation for managing and recording non-conforming products. iii) Evaluation of the cause of the non-conformance. iv) Segregation of batches / lots affected. v) Communication with relevant parties. vi) Preventive or corrective action to avoid repetition of the non-conformance.



Responsibility for review and disposal of non-conforming products must be defined. All incidences of non-conforming oilseeds must be recorded and decisions regarding actions to be taken must only be made by authorised personnel.



Non-conforming oilseeds must be dealt with in one of the following ways: i) Sent to waste ii) Reworked iii) Accepted by concession (if agreed in writing by the client)



Requirements for reprocessing non-conforming oilseeds must be documented and any affected oilseeds be re-evaluated on completion to ensure that the batch / lot concerned subsequently meets specified requirements



The approval and use of reworks (e.g. from quality rejects, customer returns or spillage) must be considered within the HACCP plan. Those that are not approved must become waste and be disposed of accordingly.
