Hi BRC V7 has a new clause Requirement 6.2.1 of the BRC Standard for Food Safety requires sites to have a formal process for the allocation of packaging materials to packing lines which ensures that only the packaging for immediate use is available to the packaging machines. Ideally, this will be achieved by only releasing new packaging from the store when all packaging from the previous run has been removed from the area.
This is going to add significant costs to our business by drastically increasing our changeover times. We have a large number of SKU and can have over 3000 changeovers a year.
Can anyone tell me how they are managing it and/or if FSSC22000 or IFS have similar clauses, it may be time to change
