The rules do not then indicate the must of an internal traceability, in other words the reconstruction of the entire route inside the plant is not necessary, but the duty to identify who supplied what and what has been supplied to whom is sanctioned. Therefore, what has become mandatory through EC rules 178/2002, is the sole external traceability apt to detect the transfer of liability bound to the property transfer. In some sectors, such as the meat, eggs, wine, shellfish and fish, supply chain source-tracing is mandatory, whereas in other sectors it is possible to acquire a quality certification through voluntary rules. Norm UNI 10939 “Source-tracing system in the agro-industrial supply chains – General design and operation principles “ sets the general principles for the design and actuation of a source- tracing system in agro-industrial supply chains. It is an outline norm defining the standards and specifying the requisites for the operation of a supply chain source-tracing system whenever the history of a product must be documented and the specific liabilities by identifying and recording the material flows and organizations contributing to the making, marketing and supply of an agro-industrial product. The norm does not intend to enforce the uniformity of the supply chain source-tracing methods by associating the word “supply chain source-tracing” to the product/s or the major component/s. As conceived, this norm somewhat intends to leave to the parties the burden to define the breadth ( meaning beginning and end of the supply chain) and depth (meaning number of products and components) of the agro- industrial supply chain, since the design and operation of a supply chain source-tracing system are influenced by the product for which the documented supply chain is meant to be defined and by the necessity to observe the legislation and compulsory rules. The norm sets, as first act for the single organizations, to share such aspects as the products’ or the major components’ definition, the flows of involved materials, the separation and registration methods of the product as much as needed. The second step consists in ensuring the proper operation of the supply chain source-tracing system by any involved organization, though the definition of a control plan. The norm also reserves special attention to training, sensitising and involvement of the personnel appointed by the participating organizations, given the significance that the awareness of the importance of one’s own role can play in a source-tracing system. Once the system has been established, a periodical review is necessary to evaluate its effectiveness. The norm also provides for the system to be documented in order to acquire its updated, filed and easily accessed registration. Another voluntarily applicable norm is the UNI 11020 dated 2002 Source-tracing system in the agro-industrial supply chains – General design and operation principles, this document defining the requirements to be met by each firm for the correct management of source- tracing inside itself. The application of this norm cannot leave out the previous one: UNI 10939. The former inserts in fact upon the latter in order to provide each agro-industrial firm with to source-trace batches of materials and finished products. 5
