SCOPA members are committed to ensuring the highest possible standards of safety, hygiene and quality of the oils and fats they supply to the food industry.  By using a SCOPA approved Haulier, companies can be confident that each tanker is dedicated to foodstuffs only; meets a strict set of key criteria; that the driver is conversant with the SCOPA Code of Practice for the Transport of Edible Oils and Fats and that a full and accurate record is kept of every load transported in each SCOPA approved tanker.

Each SCOPA approved haulier is independently audited every 12 months to ensure that they are following the Code of Practice stringently.  A list of all the registered hauliers is available from the Secretariat.

SCOPA warns on PAH's
The UK Seed Crushers and Oil Processors Association (SCOPA) is demanding greater vigilence from farmers to avoid high PAHs (Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons) in the UK rapeseed crop.  This year there have been several loads delivered to crush plants with extremely high PAH levels.  This is costing UK crushers hundreds of thousands of pounds to deal with.

Fediol is the Federation that represents the vegetable oils and fats industry in the European Union. It works with national associations, like SCOPA, to ensure a favourable business environment for seed crushers and oil processors.
