Magnets and / or metal detectors must be included in processing systems where indicated as necessary by the risk assessment study.
Critical sieves, screens, filters, separators, magnets and metal detectors must be regularly checked to ensure that they are not damaged and that they continue to operate effectively. Records of checks of all magnets and metal detectors must be kept.
If separators, sieves or screens are used to clean products and cleanings from this equipment form a component of the oilseed meal produced, producers must be able to demonstrate that potentially harmful cleanings are separated from those destined for feed use. Such harmful cleaning must be disposed of and not reincorporated into the meal at any stage.
