Raw Materials



Participants must record the following for the oilseeds utilised to produce feed ingredients: i) The name and address of the supplier of the raw material. ii) Information of the production or process from which the raw material is derived. iii) A risk assessment for the oilseeds, identifying potential hazards (e.g. type of drier, maintenance, bitumen floor joint sealant etc) and the means by which these hazards are controlled by the supplier, the participant or both parties.



Where risk assessments identify the need for specific controls or limits to ensure the appropriate management of potential hazards, these must be included in the specifications agreed with suppliers of the affected raw materials.
