Crop Passport Requirements & Quality Assurance

Each individual load of OSR delivered to a crusher, a store or a port must be accompanied by an appropriate individual passport

Each load’s passport must be original and individually completed (i.e. it is not permissible to fill out one passport and then make photocopies for remaining loads)

Each passport must have the appropriate quality assurance stickers affixed to them.

Crop Passports

3 types of crop passport are available:

- YELLOW passports for double zero “00” OSR and all other crops (except HOLL & HEAR)

- RED passports for High Erucic Acid Rape (HEAR) OSR

- BLUE passports for High Oleic Low Linolenic (HOLL) OSR

You can download and print all of these crop passports from the United Oilseeds Website here:

Crop Separation at Harvest

It is absolutely essential that HOLL and HEAR crops are stored and transported completely separately to “00” rapeseed. Please ensure all your staff, contractors and hauliers are aware of this requirement.
