CR.RA.1 Key


A documented Crop Contamination Risk Assessment must be completed. (Revised)

How you will be measured


The Risk Assessment takes into account all possible sources of contamination at each process stage, including during short and long-term storage.


The following areas of possible contamination are considered: - physical (e.g. glass, metal, clay pigeon fragments, lead shot, bitumen, stone, plastic, other crops; peas/beans, HEAR, treated seed) - chemical (e.g. pesticides, fuel oil, mycotoxins – DON, ZON, OTA, ergot, T2/HT2), which includes: - a CIPC Store Risk Assessment for each store - for wheat: a completed AHDB mycotoxin risk assessment for the current growing season, for each field, or agronomically similar blocks of fields - biological - allergens (e.g. soy, mustard, celery)


Control measures and prevention are detailed for all the potential contaminants identified.


The following is included in the control measures: - clay pigeons are not shot over standing crops of rape after the yellow bud stage - there is no shooting over stored grain
