"Pens used in open product areas shall be controlled to minimise the risk of physical contamination (e.g. designed without small parts and detectable by foreign-body detection equipment)".

BRC 'Global standards for food safety' section

The information to develop Issue 8 of the BRC standard has been reviewed by working groups made up of international stakeholders representing food manufacturers, retailers, food service companies, certification bodies and independent technical experts.

The focus has been on:

  • Encouraging development of product safety culture
  • Adding clarity to the requirements for high-risk, high-care and ambient high-care production risk zones
  • Providing greater clarity for sites manufacturing pet food
  • Ensuring global applicability and bench-marking to the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI)

Detectamet and BRC Issue 8

"As a BRC Compliance auditor I like to set a good example whilst visiting factories around Asia and all my factory needs are supplied by Detectamet Ltd. with clipboard and pen being my mainstay items. The selection of style from just a stick pen through clips and lanyards to retractable I carry a selection even ink that flows in different temperature environments are available. Through my experience I have found that the ink flows out smoothly and evenly, without skipping and with minimal pressure and it rarely, if ever, feathers out from your lines or bleeds through good notebook paper. I would whole heartily recommend Metal Detectable pens from Detectamet Ltd".

BRC Compliance Auditor in Asia

Detectamet's long established reputation of detectable innovation is consistanly providing food and pharmaceutical producers with a way to push towards complete control of open product areas, with the goal of eliminating contamination by foreign bodies.

The latest new development is the introduction of the patent pending fully detectable ink refill which is now being incorporated exclusively into Detectamet's Market Leading BRC Compliant Metal Detectable Pens.

The complete ink cartridge, both the body and the end stop, are now made from our proven Metal Detectable and X-Ray Visible Plastic. This makes the whole of the pen detectable by foreign-body detection equipment by eliminating the end stop which is commonly made from non-detectable plastic.

With the introduction of the fully detectable plastic ink refill, Detectamet's range of detectable pens are the only pens available that can claim to be fully detectable by foreign-body detection equipment.
