With regards to traceability in the oilseeds supply chain, the European regulatory environment must be considered, and particularly the Regulation (EC) N°178/2002, published on January 28, 2004, laying down the traceability requirement and obligations. Traceability must be seen as a risk management tool, which is meant to ensure that targeted and accurate withdrawals or recalls of unsafe products can be undertaken. Oilseeds operators in Europe did not wait for the publication of the above-mentioned regulation to enhance systems that ensure traceability. The “one step back – one step forward” approach was already in place within the chain. Nevertheless, those oilseeds operators must ensure that the current systems set up are respectful with obligations as defined in European law (types of information, delay of archives, types of operators…).
Key words: traceability / regulation (EC) N°178/2002 / risk management tool
