Dear All, 

 

I'm on my way to developing Environmental Monitoring Pathogen Control Program. Part of our controls is the conduct of equipment swabbing for both food contact and non-food contact surfaces.  

 

However, the control limits we have are only for the food contact surfaces (eg, APC, CC, M/Y, E.coli and Salmonella). 

 

Can anybody suggest  limit values for the non-food contact surfaces? I suppose these figures are higher than those set for the food contact surfaces.

 

Thanks.

Hi SDQA,

 

It likely depends on a variety of factors, eg product, process, interpretation of non-contact surfaces.

 

For example, can see the zoning discussions in attachments in this post/thread -

Perhaps you can be more specific regarding yr own process / NC surfaces of interest ?
