      Hello,

       

      Based on my experience, our auditors did not require a separate set of documented management system for the QA laboratory.

       

      Our existing org charts, procedures, work instructions and guidelines were checked against the 22000 clauses, but we were checked for records of Proficiency Testing - which is not specifically in 22000.

       

      Most of the clauses in the 17025 overlap in a way with the 22000 standards (ISO 22000s including the TS and the details in the Additional Requirements).

      Hello May,

       Its better to have separate storage space. In case of limited storage space, I think it is acceptable if 

      Veg. foods are always stored above non-veg. foods and cooked foods above uncooked foods on separate racks in the refrigerator
