Global Standard for Food Safety Issue 8 Clause states

"Pens used in open product areas shall be controlled to minimise risk of physical contamination (e.g designed without small parts and detectable by foreign body detection equipment)"

BST are pleased to state that all our detectable pens conform to this requirement. 

The BST Detectapen® features a polypropylene co-polymer body and core which are met
al detectable, x-ray visible, food grade, shatter resistant and antibacterial. The pen is designed to be the safest writing instrument you could take into a food production facility.

Our NEW and improved stainless steel ink cartridges now feature metal detectable and x-ray visible end stops. They are also tested to write for approximately 10,000 metres - thats over 268 A4 pages, before running out of ink.

The BST Detectapen® does not contain any small or easily detachable components, and is available in 9 bright colours (Blue, Red, Green, Yellow, Orange, Pink, White, Black, Purple) to fit most colour schemes.
