FOSFA releases latest lists of acceptable previous cargoes and banned previous cargoes

The Federation of Oils, Seeds and Fats Associations (FOSFA) has published updated lists of acceptable and banned previous cargoes

The Federation of Oils, Seeds and Fats Associations (FOSFA) has published updated lists of acceptable and banned previous cargoes (October 2004) . These are maintained and updated by FOSFA as certain cargoes can be a possible source of contamination. These latest lists have been developed in accordance with FOSFA Operational Procedures and put restrictions on the previous cargo, or the last two cargoes and, in the case of leaded products, the last three previous cargoes.

FOSFA's standard terms incorporate reference to a list of banned substances which may not be carried as the immediate last cargo prior to loading oils and fats. These terms apply in the absence of any express agreement to the contrary.
