For which feed is a positive release sampling required?

Producers of fatty acids from chemical refining, fatty acid distillates from physical refining, monoesters of propylene glycol and fatty acid, blended fats and oils, which contain fatty acids and blended fatty acids, crude fish oil and crude coconut oil as well as producers of blended fats and oils which contain fatty acids and blended fatty acids must carry out a positive release sampling before marketing their end products.

In addition, positive release sampling must be carried out for crude fatty acids from splitting and pure distilled fatty acids from splitting if a raw material other than vegetable oil (QS number 02.20.01) was used for the production. Also, for fatty acids, esterified with glycerol, salts from fatty acids, mono-, di- and triglycerides of fatty acids and mono- and diglycerides of fatty acids esterified with organic acids positive release sampling must be carried out if they are not produced with or from fatty acids from the splitting of vegetable oil (QS number 02.20.01).

These products can only be placed on the market if uncritical analysis results on certain parameters, e.g. dioxins, are already on available and handled to the customers.
