The distinctiveness of soybean oil inspection is pre-shipment survey control, which includes qualitative and quantitative GMO testing on a selected sample. To date, the EU has restricted the consumption of transgenic foods and introduced GMO labeling. Thus, laboratory testing of soybean oil for GMOs today is a prerequisite for the certification of exported cargo.

FOSFA-accredited inspectors and laboratory technicians from CISS GROUP carry out soybean oil inspection at any point of the supply chain.

Incoming/outgoing soybean oil inspection.

It is carried out during delivery of soybean oil to tanks or to a port, or when importing / exporting from factories' warehouses.

If required samples will be taken for technical and chemical analyzes in FOSFA-authorized - accredited laboratories.

Acceptance of cleanliness containers / holds of vessels before loading soybean oil.

It is a visual inspection of containers or empty holds for their cleanliness and suitability for the carriage of soybean oil. The inspector thoroughly inspects their internal surfaces, controls the position of flexi-tanks (if such are used) in containers, checks the integrity and performance of locks and hinges, rubber seals for container doors and hold covers.

Visual control of the loading process and sampling of soybean oil.

During loading, the inspector controls the loading of soybean oil, calculates the gross / net weight during reloading; in the case of loading soybean oil into the holds - the initial, intermediate and final check of the weight of the loaded cargo using the draft survey method can be performed. Additionally attending inspector conducts a visual assessment of the quality of the cargo, takes samples in accordance with the FOSFA sampling rules and forms composite samples. During loading, the inspector regularly checks pipes, valves, pumps and other equipment to detect possible leaks or contamination. At the end of the loading, the inspector will seal the loaded containers or holds. He enters all the data into reports, to which the client gets direct access. Note that the CISS GROUP loading inspection and sampling can be carried out around the clock on 24/7 basis!

Laboratory analyzes of soybean oil quality.

We check the quality of soybean oil exclusively in FOSFA accredited laboratories in accordance with the requirements of existing international or local standards. The determined standard indicators of the quality of soybean oil include: organoleptic characteristics such as transparency, taste, smell and laboratory tests for humidity; color number; iodine number; non-fatty impurities; phosphorus-containing substances; acid number; peroxide number.

In addition to basic analyzes, laboratory tests are carried out for the presence of pesticides, mycotoxins, GMO, dioxins, heavy metals and radioactive elements in soybean oil.

Photo and video report.

The inspector records each stage of the inspection with photos and videos. All such data contain the date and time of recorded stage of inspection. At the end of the soybean oil inspection, CISS GROUP provides a detailed photo report of all stages of control and inspection.
