Determining the tests carried out by FOSFA analyst members

As per the terms of the FOSFA contracts, we require analyst member laboratories to conduct analysis on the traded oilseeds, oils and fats using specific contractual tests, unless they are otherwise instructed by their principal. 

These tests and methods are stipulated in the Contractual Methods of Analysis document. It details the mandatory and optional tests full and associate member analysts will undertake on commodities traded using our contracts.
