(c)a clean area in which treated compost or digestion residues are stored.

(2) The clean area must be adequately separated from the reception area and the area in which vehicles and containers are cleansed and disinfected so as to prevent contamination of the treated material. Floors must be laid so that liquid cannot seep into the clean area from the other areas.

(3) The reception area must be easy to clean and disinfect and must have an enclosed and lockable place or container to receive and store the untreated animal by-products.

2.  The animal by-products must be unloaded in the reception area and either–

(a)treated immediately; or

(b)stored in the reception area and treated without undue delay.

3.  The plant must be operated in such a way that–

(a)treated material is not contaminated by untreated or partially treated material or liquids arising from it; and

(b)partially treated material is not contaminated with material which has not been treated to the same extent or liquids arising from it.

4.  The operator must identify, control and monitor suitable critical points in the operation of the plant to demonstrate that–

(a)these Regulations and the Community Regulation are complied with;

(b)treated material is not contaminated by untreated or partially treated material or liquids arising from it; and

(c)partially treated material is not contaminated with material which has not been treated to the same extent or liquids arising from it.

5.  Containers, receptacles and vehicles used for transporting untreated animal by-products must be cleaned in the dedicated area before they leave the premises and before any treated material is loaded. In the case of vehicles transporting only untreated catering waste and not subsequently transporting treated material, only the wheels of the vehicle need be cleaned.
