'Policies and procedures for prevention of foreign object contamination of finished product shall be implemented irrespective of the use of foreign object detection systems. This shall include an incident management procedure that handles situations when foreign objects are found'. WQA v8.
What is the difference between an 'incident management procedure' and a non-conformance report?
When foreign objects are found in a product, shouldn't it be listed as a non conformance where the root cause is investigated, corrective actions/preventative measures are made?
Does this clause mean that there should be a separate 'incident management procedure'? If so, what would it look like?
Would love to hear your opinions and thoughts!
And if anyone has a 'incident management procedure' for foreign objects would you be able to provide an example of how it might look like?
