Abstract: An almost independent set-valued process on a Loeb product space is shown to be representable as the closure of a sequence of its selections which are almost independent themselves. This provides a Castaing type representation in terms of independent correspondences. Different definitions of independence for correspondences in the literature are also unified in a general setting.
