Magnet Audits & Validation Reports
Like metal detectors and x-ray equipment, magnets play a vital role in food safety and contamination control in food processing. In order to maintain maximum separation efficiency and be most effective, magnets need to be not only the right strength, but also need to be positioned correctly in the flow of product, in the right location, and configured to achieve maximum separation efficiency and retainment of foreign metal contamination.
Magnattack™ Global has partnered with Active Magnetics Research to identify and reduce the risk of metal fragment contamination, thereby improving product purity and the overall safety of your products. AMR coordinate magnet validations worldwide and have extensive experience relating to metal fragment control system design, testing and analysis.
Helping with FSMA Compliance
The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) forces food manufacturers to be proactive in reducing risks to food safety. AMR Magnet Validation Reports are being used by numerous food processing companies to help meet the FSMA requirements.
AMR Reports assist in meeting the steps of Section 102 and Section 103 – hazard analysis, preventative controls, monitoring, corrective actions, verification, and record keeping.

Magnattack Global USA is the Commissioned Magnet Testing Agent for AMR in North America.
For more information or to schedule your next magnet validation, please email us here and a Magnattack® technician will be in touch shortly.
Magnets should be tested yearly in accordance with a HACCP International program and the current 0909MAGSEP 1-2010 Food Safety Standard.
This will ensure they are within specification and effective to critical food safety controls, and any identified causes of demagnetization, damage, or ineffectiveness is flagged and appropriate corrective measures are taken.
AMR Magnet Testing Services and Magnet Validation Reports are endorsed by HACCP International.
