I am very new to Food Safety as my background is Environmental Analysis however I recently join a manufacturing company and trained as the new SQF Practitioner. I've had similar questions What's the difference when you say management system and programmes? Is GMP a management system? Here's what my reading has lead me to conclude:
What's the difference when you say management system and programmes?: I have come think of the System as including all the programmes. So your pest management programme, GLP, maintenance programme, waste management programme, allergen control programme would all be part of you Management System
Is GMP a management system? In may company, unfortunately, GMP are regarded as something akin to a good hygiene practices programme. I on the other had have come to see Good Manufacturing Practices as a System that should include all your programmes:
-Document Control -Training -Good Laboratory Practices -Maintenance - Pest Management -Cleaning/Sanitation -Internal Auditing
-Allergen Control - Hazard Analysis - Good Hygiene Practices -Recall Programme - Waste Management etc.
In short I think all programmes should be geared towards showing Good Manufacturing Practices
Hope this is helpful
