Inspection Level .Rice inspection Report 26/3/2011 Sampling procedure This part prescribes the sampling procedure which was followed by CAC inspection team to ensure obtaining a representative sample. Sampling The required number of primary sampling units equal to 174 bags selected randomly from the whole commodity. the whole quantity was divided into 2 Sub-Lots and the number of bags from which samples were drawn are 174 bags from the whole lot. sampling plan used is one in which the lot is only accepted if zero defectives occur in the sample Probability of lot acceptance 100% The zero acceptance sampling plan nonconformance in sample dose not imply that the lot is perfect Sufficient number of bags selected so as to be representative of the consignment.000 bags. 5% broken Origin : Pakistan Net weight : 35 kg Crop 2010/2011 Processed : 01/2011 Since the commodity comprised more than 10. 5 /6 Conformity Assessment Centre (CAC) .

which are not only representative of the composite sample but of the lot and to be submitted to the laboratory. 6 /6 Conformity Assessment Centre (CAC) . C. • Reduced samples CAC inspection team reduced the sample size to a smaller size sample by the reduction in weight of a larger quantity of the composite sample many times to reach the final representative sample. • Final Samples Two representative samples of weight 2. Preparation of samples • Primary samples CAC's team collected increment samples of approximately equal size randomly from the 174 rice bags and placed in a clean dry polypropylene bag were portions taken from various levels of the these stacks so as to obtain fairly representative sample of the whole consignment • Composite sample (bulk sample ) CAC inspection team thoroughly mixed the incremental samples to form a single homogenous composite sample. The sub sample is usually divided equally into the required number of portions.50 kg/each were finally obtained NOTE: One sample for laboratory testing and the other to be kept in CAC.Rice inspection Report 26/3/2011 According to the Codex GENERAL GUIDELINES ON SAMPLING CAC/GL 502004 The calculation of the adequate sample size as the following characteristics: ♦ Container Size : 35 KG Polypropylene bags ♦ Inspection Level : level I (The normal sampling level) ♦ lot size ♦ Sampling Size : 15000 bags : 174 bags to be inspected ♦ Acceptance Number (C=0): Zero acceptance sampling plan. ♦ Average sample increment weight (gm): 400-500 gm CAC's team took random samples from all the containers and from different places within the container in order to ensure that the random samples taken are representative of the whole quantity.

Preparatory Examination Inspection of commodity in warehouse CAC's team also inspected the warehouse of ICRC in abu-Alanda by looking any signs of damage on the packaging of the commodities.the Helica Ochratoxin Assay is competitive enzyme-linked immunoassay intended for the quantitative detection of Ochratoxin levels in grains.Rice inspection Report Work Record 26/3/2011 The results of all tests and findings of the laboratory were recorded clearly and accurately herein to be evaluated and to be used as a source of information reported on the inspection certificate.
