the Physical separation method
 
requiresseparating certifed and non-certifed rawmaterial during all phases o the company’sproduction / trading process to ensurethat certifed raw material is not mixedwith non-certifed raw material. When thephysical separation method is used orproducts with percentage based claims,every delivery must be processed or tradedseparately.
