Pests can pose a threat to the safety of our products. In order to prevent pests, we use an external specialist company. There are also various internal controls in place to prevent potential contamination with pests. The frequency of the check is based on the risk. The plan is revised yearly or in the case of an infestation or significant changes in the building, process, product, or surroundings.
Outsourced Pest Control:
We have outsourced pest control to a specialist company. They possess the necessary expertise for the pest control to work properly and must comply with all relevant legislation regarding training and registration of their activities and competences.
When the inspection discovers an issue, corrective action must be taken. The corrective action, whether undertake by the outside company or by ourselves, must be completed within the stipulated time. All measures taken are recorded and verified. Possible contamination must also be treated as a possible risk towards the product. The measures can therefore be bigger than the placing of a new bait box. For example, the product eaten by pests must be quarantined. Any potential contamination of the product by the established pest infestation must also recorded in the action plan.
When bait boxes are missing, it must be recorded, assessed, and investigated.
Internal Pest Control:
To avoid pests there are various internal controls in place.
Entry control: By entry control, our products are examined for possible pests. If pests are present, the delivery will be refused.
Hygiene Monitoring: During the various checks in the company, we looked at:
- The presence of excrement and pests.
- Dirt accumulation.
- Possible shelters by incorrect storage.
- Structural state and possible cracks to the outdoors.
If a discrepancy is identified then corrective measures implemented.
Prerequisite Program: The Prerequisite Program is reviewed annually. Here attention is also given to possible entry routes for pests and an annual in-depth inspection of the pest control system is carried out.
All measures taken are recorded.
